The following announcement was written by the New England Historic Genealogical Society:
The New England Historic Genealogical Society is pleased to announce the launch of the NEHGS & Ancestry.com collaboration, making available for the first time special pricing and other member benefits.
This collaboration is one we hope marks the beginning of future programs and specials that bring together some of the most important and vital research information to amateur and professional genealogists everywhere. We are excited to offer the following specials to our members and friends:
U.S. Deluxe Membership Discount
To start, all current NEHGS members can purchase Ancestry.com's U.S. Deluxe membership, normally priced at $155.40, for only $99.95! That's a tremendous savings that allows you to begin accessing some of the most important online information anywhere.
Ancestry.com is the world's largest online resource for family history information, with more than 5 billion names and 24,000 searchable databases and titles. Free services on Ancestry.com offer individuals the opportunity to create online family trees and share them with others. Members can upload photos and add stories to their tree - even record oral histories.

Additional Discount for Joining Both
Additionally, if your NEHGS membership has lapsed, or if you've been putting off joining the NEHGS family, this is a terrific time to rejoin. You can purchase both an NEHGS annual Research membership and a U.S. Deluxe Ancestry.com membership together for one low price of $155.40. This incredible opportunity is available for the first time ever, and brings together two of the most valued and important genealogical research tools available today. Please note that current NEHGS and Ancestry.com members are not eligible for this price.
