Part of the mission of the Dallas Genealogical Society is to collect, preserve, copy, and index information relating to Dallas County and its early history and to make that information available to the public. One of the ways that we accomplish that goal is by making information freely available on this web site. Anybody can access our cemetery information, local records, view archived copies of our newsletters and (coming soon) access the information in our surname registry.


You can support the efforts of the Dallas Genealogical Society (and have full access to all of the contents of this web site) for as little as $35 a year. See our Benefits of Membership page for more information.  Better yet, join today! You have two options to join: by check or credit card.


The membership dues for the Dallas Genealogical Society are:

  • $35 - One year Individual Membership
  • $40 - One year Household Membership (individuals at the same address)
  • $700 - Life membership for those under the age of 65
  • $500 - Life membership for those 65 or older
