Member Benefit: Magazine Discounts

The North Carolina Genealogical Society is pleased to announce a new member benefit: Discounts on two great genealogy publications.

Family Chronicle and Internet Genealogy are offering NCGS members a $25 rate for one-year (six issue) subscriptions or renewals to either or both Family Chronicle and Internet Genealogy. That's a $7.95 savings off the regular rate of $32.95 a year.

To receive this benefit, log into the NCGS website, then visit our NCGS Members Magazine Discount page.
