TCGHS Membership

Dear Prospective New Member,

Welcome to the Tazewell County Genealogical & Historical Society!  We are happy that you are considering membership in the Society.  We currently have over 400 members located all over the world.  At the bottom of this page, you will find a link to an application form you can use online or download and print.

Dues listed on the application ($20-23) are for a calendar year.  You will receive all 12 issues of our monthly newsletter - no matter when you join.  Dues received after October 1 will be considered next year's dues unless otherwise requested.

When you join, you will begin receiving our newsletter, The Monthly.  Your name and address will be published as a new member along with the surnames you are researching.  We sometime compose queries from information we receive in letters and emails, or you may write your own queries, which will be published at no charge in The Monthly.  If you prefer, you may elect to receive The Monthly electronically rather than through the postal system.

What can the Society do for you?

  • Help with Tazewell County research
  • Place your surnames and other material in our library
  • Publish your queries at no charge
  • Continue working on publications
  • Continue collecting and indexing ancestor charts, family histories, and other genealogical materials
  • Continue adding to our library's collection

What can you do for the Society?

  • Support us with your membership
  • Send us materials for The Monthly that would be of interest to our readers. Submissions should may be emailed as a Microsoft Word attachment. If possible, images should be a minimum of 200dpi resolution (jpeg preferred). All submissions are subject to editing and/or serialization over multiple issues.
  • Fill out and return an ancestor chart
  • Send us your family history book or other information
  • Attend our meetings when you are in the Tazewell County area - the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm at 719 North Eleventh Street, Pekin, Illinois (unless scheduled otherwise).

We look forward to receiving your membership and hope to helpful in your genealogical research.
