National Reconciliation Template

This form is to be used by States. In addition to providing a standardized format for reporting all the changes in membership year over year, the new Reconciliation Form also calculates the amount of dues that the society owes to the National Office. In future years, the form can be updated to include any changes in dues or membership categories. There are instructions and a Chapter format as well. (Both Can be found in the forms section)

 

he 2013 template has been tested by a number of state society secretaries across the nation to find any formula errors and to identify potential issues.  The template that is now available is the result of this testing.  The version of the template that you should be using has the following time / date stamp on the Cover Sheet:  “Last Updated: 20 May 2013 – 800 hours MCA”.

 

The major change for this year is that all positive additions to the society are entered on a single page.  Also, Memorial memberships can now be correctly entered as both an addition and subtraction. 

 

Please note that if you have been keeping track of the 2013 membership on the previous form that data does not need to be entered over again.  If desired, that data should be COPIED & PASTED into the new template.  DO NOT CUT & PASTE as that will corrupt the embedded formulas in the spread sheet. 

 

As always, if there are any issues, please contact the National Office and they will forward all questions and issues to the appropriate volunteers for follow up.

SAR Application (PDF Version)

This file allows the user to produce an application form that is (within the limits of the printer being used) very similar to the current pre-printed NSSAR Membership Application Form, Form #0915. Before Printing, you may need to change the Page Setup to Legal Size paper. When printing, Print page 1, then reinsert the paper into your printer and print Page 2 on the back side. The form and data can be saved to your hard drive for editing later or to use when filing a Supplemental Application which uses much of the same lineage. Remember to use the "Save As" Command, and change the name of the file.

Application Preparation Manual

 

One of the primary objectives of SAR in general, and of its State and Chapter Registrars in particular, is growing its numbers.  Key factors in that process are the preparation, review, and approval of membership applications.  The intent of this Manual is to help Registrars understand their responsibilities as Registrar and understand the elements of a successful application by discussing in general terms policies adopted by the NSSAR Genealogy Committee, and by providing examples both of best practices and common pitfalls.  For detailed text of current policies, see the Genealogy Committee Policies Manual.
