"Working together we can accomplish more"

Membership is open to all interested persons.  You are invited to join.  We currently have members from the US, Canada, and other countries.  We welcome members from any location.


  • A Newsletter, Corson Cousins, is published and mailed quarterly (by e-mail or surface mail).  Surname indexes for the newsletter are accessible and searchable for free.  Members have free access to PDF versions of past issues (1995-present).  Printed copies of other past issues are available for purchase.   Details and pricing can be found on our publications page.
  • The organization has established a Research Library to "identify, collect, organize, preserve, and share information and items relevant to genealogy, especially to the history of Corson/Colson families". The unique holdings may be explored through the online library catalog.
  • Our Handbook and Membership Directory contains the listings, including regular and e-mail addresses, of our members, both active and inactive, including the lines they are researching or connected to. Updates are mailed with the newsletters.  A new directory edition is usually issued every two years.
  • We maintain a Resource & Bibliography List with hundreds of entries specific to our lines.  Most have lookup volunteers or are in possession of members.
  • This Web Site and the RootsWeb Surname Discussion Lists  are maintained for stimulating communication between members.  This site contains an exclusive section for members only which includes information that can expand your research and bring you close to organization activities and resources.
  • We provide our services to both online and non-computer members. (Most of our active members are online.)
  • Queries can be submitted online to the RootsWeb Surname Discussion Lists.  There is no cost or membership requirement to participate in our online activities.
  • Queries can also be submitted by regular mail or email to the Newsletter Editor.  Member queries will be published without charge in our newsletter.  Non member queries will be responded to (and possibly published) as time and resources allow.  Please include a SASE with any genealogical information request.
  • Research and Publication Projects are encouraged and supported to further the interests of members, family Divisions, and the association as a whole.  See the CCFHA in Action & The 300+ Project pages to review some of our exciting and useful projects.
Annual dues: $14.00 US per year.  (Non-domestic memberships $17.00)
(Dues cover a calendar year 1 Jan-31 Dec.  All members have access to the CCFHA Members Only website, which contains past issues of newsletters.)
New Members: New members will receive the CCFHA Membership Directory and Member Handbook.
