Betty, I agree with you about NEHGS, I think more people would be inclined to join if they offered such a payment plan. Maybe $10 per month for 8 months, or something that is reasonable for us poor folk! I too am not able to join, but do enjoy the few times they have offered 'free' access for a weekend.

For the 10 yrs. I've been on-line, and have done genealogy on-line, I have wished I could afford the annual fee for becoming a member of NEHGS. But, just have never been able to afford that $75 coming out of our budget, especially during January. This month I have thought of something. Wouldn't it be nice for many of us if NEHGS would offer us a payment-plan. Hopefully $7 per month.
I don't know if they continued this, but "Public Television" in Boston is now offering a "maintenance plan" where we can pay $5 per month to belong to PBS-TV.
I mentioned this to a librarian last week, and she made the comment that too many people would promise to send in $7 a month to NEHGS - but then not continue doing that. She misunderstood. I meant that we could sign up to pay the $7 a month through PAYPAL, or some other method. That is fairly easy to do.
Please note that NEHGS now has a new URL for getting to their web site. And, I just checked this year's membership fee, and see they have raised their price. It is now ~$80 annually.
