CGS Membership

Anyone who is interested in genealogy and history can become a member. The greatest part of our members are made up of those who are descendants of Joshua Clyburn (c. 1758 – c. 1759). However, it is not necessary to have a particular surname.

Your membership not only provides you with access to (forthcoming) regular newsletters and an email address ending in, it also allows CGS to continue its important work in researching, gathering and archiving data and artifacts of the family. Your membership dollars will go toward, among other things, web hosting expenses and membership fees for other genealogical organizations integral to the research of our family.

Dues for a yearly membership is $20. Yearly Membership runs January 1st to December 31st. Permanent Membership is available for a one-time payment of $100. CGS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, with charitable receipts provided upon request.

CGS welcomes and encourages general contributions in addition to, or in lieu of, membership dues. Just enter your desired contribution in the form to the left, as well as your name and email address, and click the “Pay with PayPal” button.
