Registration & membership

Registering with Tracing the Past e.V. is free and will allow you to keep up to date on developments of our projects and occasionally receive a newsletter from us about events and developments, which you may opt out of at any time. We treat your contact information as strictly confidential and will never share this information with any third parties under any circumstances. Please see our Data Protection / Legal Notice page for more information on these topics.

Tracing the Past also welcomes you to apply for contributory membership. Becoming a contributing member will give you unique benefits such as regular progress updates, advance updates to online access, and possible local workshops. But the greatest benefit of becoming a contributing member is knowing that you are supporting an important and unprecedented memorialization project. These membership fees go towards funding our daily office and operating expenses and for the extensive historical research and IT work necessary for our projects.
