Membership would be open on two levels:

1. As members of the society who have an interest in Genealogy and History, who participate in the society’s functions and can view all data and documents. Institutions would be invited on a subscription basis.

2. As Contributors of information, documents and data germane to the database who are professionals in their fields and others who are serious researchers. Professionals would be granted access by their credentials and the society would at times invite other participants based upon their knowledge or body of work. Participating Genealogical and Historical Societies would be granted Contributorships.

The society would also appreciate help in obtaining permissions, obtaining graphic content, and administering the database.
