Tracing the Past welcomes you to apply for contributory membership. Becoming a contributing member will give you unique benefits such as regular progress updates, advance updates to online access, and possible local workshops, but the greatest benefit of becoming a contributing member is knowing that you are supporting an important and unprecedented memorialization project. These membership fees go towards funding our daily office and operating expenses and for the extensive historical research and IT work necessary for our projects.

Contributing membership options are as follows:

-->Individual Contributing Member: 175 Euros (150 Euros/yr. membership, one-time 25 Euro setup fee)

-->Institutional Contributing Member: 300 Euros (250 Euros/yr. membership, one-time 50 Euro setup fee)

Please note that you may set your own membership fee amount, the above are minimum suggested donation levels.

Please send us an email at join @ if you are interested in becoming an individual or associate contributing member, and be sure to include your name and contact information as well as your particular interest in joining our organization. We will then review your application and respond with 5 working days.

If you represent an institution, please write us at join @ with your contact information, and we can gladly discuss the details of your membership and ways in which our organizations can work cooperatively in the future.
