This is a friendly reminder that annual dues for the Missouri State Genealogical Association (MoSGA) expired December 31, 2008 (if you have already mailed in dues for 2009, please disregard this notice-- and thanks for supporting MoSGA!).

Annual dues for individuals or institutions are $20; contributing members are $40 annually; patrons are $100 annually; and life memberships are available for $400 (one time payment). Dues should be mailed to PO Box 833, Columbia, MO 65205-0833.

We appreciate your timely renewal! Postcard reminders and mailing of back-issues costs money - money we'd rather use to help the genealogical community.
