Christlieb-Chrislip-Crislip Family Association Membership
Membership in the Christlieb-Chrislip-Crislip Family Association is open to all descendants of Friedrich Carl and Anna Catharina Christlieb, as well as anyone else interested in our Christlieb-Chrislip-Crislip genealogy.
Through the family newsletter, Jacob's Ladder, members will receive results of genealogical research when available as well as the opportunity to exchange family history with other members. From time to time, there will be articles of general interest, typically in the field of genealogy. The newsletter includes features such as; 'Applause! Applause!' which showcases family members who are recognized for their accomplishments like high school or college graduations or promotions at work, and 'Sunshine and Sorrow' where we post announcements of births, marriages and deaths in our extended family. Jacob's Ladder has been in continuous publication for over 32 years, almost unheard of in family genealogical organizations. You may view the first few issues of Jacob's Ladder on the Newsletter page of our website. Just click the Newsletter button at the top of this page, in the Our Pages dropdown menu.
The annual Basic membership fee is $15. This fee goes toward postage, preparation and printing of our newsletter, and biennial meeting correspondence and costs. Additional contributions can also be made: to further the Association's efforts in genealogical research and cemetery maintenance; and, to enrich our scholarship fund. The Sustaining and Contributing membership levels help to further the the efforts of the Association in areas that need the financial help the most.
At this time, we can really use your help in supporting our Scholarship Fund. Over the years we have given over $9,000 in scholarships to deserving college students, who are members of our Family Association. During our last Reunion, we depleted our scholarship fund—almost. We had $1 left. With the high cost of education, we can really use your support in re-building our Scholarship Fund.
Our fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30 each year. So please get your membership renewal in the mail to our Treasurer as soon as possible, in June or July to receive all our communications and newsletters throughout the year.
