Genealogy

GA SCV Certificate
Membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans is open to all male descendants of any veteran who served honorably in the Confederate States of America Armed Forces. Membership can be obtained through either direct or collateral family lines and kinship to a veteran must be documented genealogically.

Proof of kinship to a Confederate soldier is available in many forms such as veteran’s military service record and pensions to veterans or their widows. Copies of these documents may be found in the archives of the state from which the soldier fought or online thru genealogical websites such as Ancestry and FamilySearch.

If you are unsure of where to start, the GA SCV has a network of genealogists and a research center to assist you in learning more about your ancestor’s Confederate service. You can join the SCV as an Associate Member to gain access to the genealogy service.

Associate Membership Form

If you already have the name and service information of your Confederate Ancestor and would like to join the Sons of Confederate Veterans now, please complete the online Full Membership application and pay your annual dues online and you’ll be member of the Georgia Division Headquarters Camp # 2200. You will have an opportunity to join a local Camp in your area at your convenience.

If you would rather fill out the Full Membership application by hand and mail it in with your annual dues, please mail the hard copy with any ancestral documents along with your check for $60 (covers SCV National dues and Georgia Division dues) made payable to the Georgia Division to:

Georgia Division, SCV
P.O. Box 1081
Macon, Ga. 31202

Upon verification of your Confederate Ancestor we will send you your Membership Certificate package and help you locate a local Camp in your area.
