AGS Members have a variety of interests--genealogy, history, folk art, religion, commemorative art, historic preservation, anthropology-and some members just like the ambiance of cemeteries and enjoy walking through them on a balmy afternoon.

The benefits of an AGS membership include:

  • The AGS Quarterly: Bulletin of the Association for Gravestone Studies, containing feature articles and regular columns on conservation, epitaphs, and international gravestone studies. Usually there are also book reviews, queries and news from other members, and news of the AGS Board and its activities
  • The next published issue of Markers, the Association's annual journal containing definitive illustrated articles on cemeteries and gravemarkers, as well as an extensive annual international bibliography of recent scholarship.
  • Discounts on all purchases from our store, including back issues of Markers.
  • Member pricing for Annual Conference registration fees.
  • Monthly e-newsletter containing special announcements, sales, articles and event and conference updates.

Supporting, Sustaining, Contributing and Life memberships include all the benefits above, plus:

  • Special listing in the Annual Report of the Association
  • Honorary listing in the AGS Quarterly
