Membership is open to anyone interested in our Mission. You do not need to have Central Florida ancestors to join us for the rewarding experience of exploring your family history. Our members come from all over the country. Members are afforded exclusive member benefits. 

Dues are paid annually and are payble on September 1st of each year. The membership year ends August 31. If you initially join CFGS after March 31st your remembership will carry through to September 1st of the NEXT year. 

Individual membership is $20.00.

Family membership is $25.00. A family membership shall consist of two or more persons living in the same household, entitled to only one (1) copy of each publication. And EACH member should fill out an application. 

A full year’s dues are payable for renewing members regardless of the date of renewal.

If you are joining as a new member and choose to pay for your CFGS dues using PayPal, please also fill out the pdf membership application (click on link to the right) and fill out that form and then save it to your computer and send it via email to

PayPal is very safe and secure. PayPal is the web’s most trusted source for online payments.  PayPal has over 180 million customers and safely processed $1.4 billion in payments in the first quarter of 2016. Very few payment processors can make that statement. 

After your membership dues are received you will receive a New Member email that will include the sign-in and password to the CFGS website. You will only need to sign in if you wish to access Members Only content.
