If you are the FGS delegate or a board member for a member organization and have not received a login, please contact the person in your organization who manages the FGS account or contact webmaster@fgs.org.

FGS Associate Organizations: The main contact for FGS associate organizations can access the magazine by logging into their account at fgs.org.

Who can subscribe to FORUM? Anyone. You don’t have to be a member of a genealogical society to subscribe to FORUM

Please note that if you are currently the FGS delegate for or serving on the board of an FGS member society or family association, you have access to the magazine through the organization’s FGS membership and do not need a subscription. If you should have an FGS delegate or society leader account but do not yet have one, contact the person in your organization who manages the FGS account or webmaster@fgs.org.

Genealogical Society Leaders: If your society is not a member of the Federation of Genealogical Societies, become one today and let your society’s leadership begin accessing FORUM and its 25+ year archives, which is just one of the many benefits of FGS membership.
