We welcome all members, whether they pay dues or not. We value what each member can contribute to our common knowledge.
We hope, however, that you will also contribute financially. We suggest a one time contribution of $25 that goes to our library fund. We, in turn, contribute your donation to the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society (SGS) which purchases items we specify. You will receive a tax receipt from the SGS for your charitable contribution.
In addition we ask that you pay an annual $10 to help operate the association. The operating funds support our Internet web site, our attendance at the SGS Family History Fair, newsletter printing and mailing, and the cost of searching for new members and information by mail.
If you are an e-mail member you may think that a contribution is not warranted because we do not use postage to serve you directly. Remember though that there is a cost to maintain our web site and that, through the mail, we may find people or information that is invaluable to you. We will gladly do all the work, but we hope you will help us carry the financial load.
Please make cheques payable to: Zichydorf Village Association, 2274 Baldwin Bay, Regina, SK, Canada, S4V 1H2.
