I've Just Joined.   What Happens Now?
 
You will be able to make use of your new membership after it is processed by CTGS.  Processing is typically completed within a few days of receipt of your membership application and payment of dues.
 
1.  If you provided a working email address, immediately after your membership is processed you will receive an email confirming your membership. That letter includes a temporary Members Only log-in name and password.
2.  Login to the Members Only section of the website using your new log-in name and password. Then change the assigned default password (and log-in name if desired). Note that log-in name must be unique across all members.
3.  View your online member record to check that the information posted there is correct.  If changes need to be made, click on the "pencil" on the right side of the screen and make the changes.  Then click SAVE.  If you need help contact the Membership Chair.
4.  From inside your member record, you can start entering ancestor surname information that will appear on the "Surnames List" page in the public area of the website.
5.  Browse information in the Members Only section of the website.  New information will be added frequently so comeback often.
6.  Once you become familiar with CTGS, please consider becoming a volunteer.  We need help with a variety of jobs and projects - some very short term projects, some long term projects, some you can do from home, some will require internet access, and some just require careful reading.  Please contact a CTGS board member to let them know you may be interested in volunteering.  We should be able to find the right job for you.
