Our Strong Family Association of America feels we need to attract our younger generations. There does seem to be a recurring interest in genealogy. Actual participation in a society, however, is something else again! My current project is to accept online payments. Until this point, mailing in a paper check is the only option!
My question is this. Has your surname-based organization faced this question? What answers did you come up with?
We have published several print volumes of family history, and have countless thousands more pages available to publish if we had the historians, writers, editors, researchers available to bring it to print. However, "having the knowledge" does not necessarily equate to "inducing the interest!"
