$120 for NGS's 120th Anniversary
On 23 April 2023, the National Genealogical Society (NGS) reached an historic milestone. We invite you to celebrate our 120th Anniversary with a financial gift to NGS.
The history of NGS spans nine generations, from our founders who were born in the mid-19th Century to Gen Z. From the dawn of the automobile to the rise of artificial intelligence, generation after generation of genealogists created a family history community that fosters collaboration and best practices in advocacy, education, preservation, and research.
To honor the extraordinary commitment of our members over 120 years, we established the
National Genealogical Society
1903 - 2023
120th Anniversary Grove
We are asking 120 friends of NGS to step forward and commemorate the Society’s 120th Anniversary by donating $120 in honor of a genealogist (past or present) or an ancestor of their choice. NGS will plant a tree in their honor through One Tree Planted, adding a real tree to your family tree.
Donors' names will also be included in a list of donors published in NGS Magazine in Spring 2024.
Join us in celebrating NGS's 120th Anniversary.
