The North of Ireland Family History Society (NIFHS) has two types of subscription Membership – Branch and Associate – both with a range of Benefits of Membership. The subscriptions paid are treated as donations made to the Society, a registered charity, for the advancement of its objects.
Associate Membership is for those, typically living overseas or far away from a Branch location, who cannot attend meetings but who wish to enjoy the other Benefits of Membership. The annual subscription is set each year by Council and is £18 for the current year.
The Associate Membership year runs for the calendar year from 1st January to 31st December. If you choose to join part-way through this calendar year, you get the full benefits of membership, including two issues of the Journal, for the remainder of the year up to 31st December.
Membership applications for the next calendar year are normally accepted online from early December.
