Each person seeking membership in The National Huguenot Society is strongly encouraged to apply for membership through a state society or local chapter. If you live in a state with an active society, you must join the state society. You cannot be a member-at-large. If a state forms into a society, you become a member of that state's society. Why, because part of our mission is about fellowship. It is recognized, however, that an individual may reside in an area that does not have an organized or functioning state society. In such a case an individual may apply for Membership-At-Large.
Those applying for Member-At-Large status must meet the same four requirements as those applying for Regular Membership through a state society, including documented proof of lineal descent in either the male or female line from a Huguenot. A listing of Huguenot surnames currently recognized as qualified for purposes of admission to The National Huguenot Society is provided on this site to aid you in your research. These names comprise a complete listing of all Huguenot names submitted and documented to the satisfaction of The National Huguenot Society to date. This listing is not, however, an exhaustive listing of all possible Huguenot lines that would qualify an individual for membership.
At-Large members have the same privileges of membership as regular members except they may not vote or hold office in the National Society.
Application for Member-At-Large status is made directly to the Registrar General. When submitted, a Member-At-Large application must be accompanied by a one-time filing fee plus 1st year's annual dues.
Further information about Membership-At-Large is available by contacting the National Registrar General.
