Membership is open to everyone interested in genealogy. Annual dues are $20 for an individual or $25 for a family. Life memberships are also available for 10X annual dues for individual or family. There is also a student membership at $10 available for those under 18 years of age. The Society's year is from January through December.
Members are encouraged to volunteer some time in the genealogy room to assist others. While it is not a requirement, many who have done so feel that they have become better researchers in the process. Members interested in becoming a volunteer in the Genealogy Room at Beale Memorial Library should contact Kay Keith, Volunteer Coordinator, in the Genealogy Room at (661) 868-0773 or email: VolunteerCoordinator@kerngenealogical.org
