How It Works

To purchase a gift membership, select a membership level below. Please be sure to enter your information at checkout, not the gift membership recipient’s, so that we have the correct billing information.

After purchase, you’ll receive an email with the Membership Gift Certificate ID and instructions for redeeming. You can share this information with the gift recipient when you are ready. Recipients will not receive any notification from American Ancestors that you purchased a gift membership for them.

Recipients Will Get

Access to over 1.4 billion online records, subscriptions to our quarterly magazine and journal, free admission to our Research Center in Boston, and discounts on our publications and services.

Recipients can redeem their membership at any time online or by contacting our Member Services team. To do so, they will need to provide their contact information and the Membership Gift Certificate ID. Gift Certificates are valid for 7 years from the date of purchase.
