At the Society’s Annual General Meeting on 17th August, 2016, the change in membership fees and categories proposed in Historian no. 104 was put to the vote and passed by a majority of 24 to 5, (83% to 17%). The subscription year still runs from 1st January to 31st December

New members wishing to enrol for the remainder of 2016 (or former members rejoining), i.e. membership expiring 31st December 2016, pay the following rates

Membership category UK Overseas
Ordinary £17 £19
Family (2 members) £19 £21
Senior Citizen* / Student £16 £18
Institution £20 £21

 

For 2017, the fees will be

Membership category UK & Overseas
Ordinary £20
Family (2 members) £25
Institution £25

 

The rates for October to December no longer apply, nor do the prompt renewal rates.
The fees and registration pages will be updated when changes to them have been approved by the Council. Until that happens, the existing registration form is valid.

Members who pay by banker’s order/standing order are asked to change their instructions before the renewal date, usually 30th November. Those who use online banking can usually do it that way. For those who do not, a form can be downloaded - http://www.tayvalleyfhs.org.uk/uploads/soc-docs/so_form.pdf.


Gift Aid.

Members who are UK tax payers are reminded that we can reclaim the tax paid on their payment. Page 12 of the June Historian points out that HMRC has insisted on changes to the Gift Aid Declaration. Members who have previously completed a Declaration are asked to do so again, and those UK tax payers who have not done so are respectfully asked to do so now. The new declaration can be downloaded here.

Tay Valley Family History Society continues our series of online talks for our members, of which this is the fifth, Our
newest talk is by our guest Jennifer Jolly, on 'Diana Rae, sea-captain's widow and her family’. Jennifer was researching 'at a distance' using materials online, and she gives much detail about
the resources she used, the places in her story (Montrose, St Cyrus, Edzell), the work of cross-
referencing to check 'facts' and even the way she has organised the materials she found. Lots
of tips here for all family researchers! The story of the research shows how persistence pays off
- and how answering one research question leads on to another! Available at  https://youtu.be/h-NUnNxTkWM

There is a Q&A zoom on this one, for which registration is available on our Members Noticeboard. Passed talks are also available on the Members Noticeboard. For access to this, you will be required to use your members access password to log in.
