Become a Member Today!

When you become a member, you will receive many benefits, including access to the Society’s nationally significant collection of more than 21 million records that spans over 350 years of history.

We are proud to announce a new benefit for members: access to genealogy workshops from home! Members can click here to view videos from our popular genealogy workshop series, recorded here at HSP.

These videos join other online benefits, such as access to a select group of HSP's records that are now available for members to research online. This means that you will be able to access records from churches, parishes, cemeteries, burial grounds, undertakers, and funeral homes – all from the comfort of your own home!
