New Membership Fees to Begin January 1, 2017

In review of the 2017 budget, income does not cover costs and the Juniata County Historical Society board of directors had to make adjustments to their membership fees.

The fees for an individual membership will be $20 and family memberships will be $25 effective January 1, 2017. And, as well email/mail volunteer research of one surname will increase as well and will cost $45.

These fees are in line with those charged by surrounding area historical societies.  We hope that this does not deter you from supporting us as we appreciate all of our members.
