Annual membership funds contribute to on-going genealogical research, publications, renovation and maintenance of the Michael Griswold house in Wethersfield, CT, and special projects.. Members receive a quarterly newsletter, and support from staff genealogists when requested. Membership dues are used to cover the costs of postage and printing the quarterly bulletin, to defray the expenses of genealogical research, and in support of our GFA website.
