Discount offer for FindMyPast (Australia) – discontinued, but NZSG do advise members of assorted discounts, eg they have recently (Apr 2018) announced access to DNA Webinars via their website, and discounts to MyHeritage DNA kits, which ordering via the link members have been sent in the latest e-kit will benefit the NZSG coffers.
Our governing body, the New Zealand Society of Genealogists, is undergoing a major revision of its rules (2015).
Members of the NZSG will have received communications from them about the proposed changes, and instructions as to how to provide submissions – by December 4th.
Details are available from their website, but as the proposed rules impact all of our membership, not only those belonging to NZSG we are providing copies of the relevant documents here for those interested.
Please log in to access the documents (forgotten how to log in – read this post)
Kapiti Genealogy is officially the Kapiti Branch of the NZ Society of Genealogists (NZSG).
However, membership of the two organisations is separate, with many advantages in having membership of both.
Under the current constitution of the NZ Society of Genealogists, only those members of the Branch who are also members of the NZSG
Your membership card therefore shows your membership status as either NZSG or Associate.
This distinction makes absolutely no difference to your treatment within the branch, eligibility for services provided, or your ability to volunteer in helping run the branch – only to the two points above.
The NZSG constitution is currently under review, and the relationship with Branches is likely to change.
We do however need to keep our current records up to date.
Likewise, if you no longer belong to the NZSG, please remove your membership number from your profile.
