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.
  • Member pricing for Annual Conference registration fees.
  • Monthly e-newsletter containing special announcements, sales, articles and event and conference updates.

The Association for Gravestone Studies has moved membership online. We have streamlined our membership tasks and put you in charge of your own accounts. You can pay dues, sign up for events, and edit your personal profile all in one place!
