We have decided to start a fresh Surname List but WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please visit your member profile and enter the surnames you are researching. You do not have to restrict them to Durham and Orange Counties. We welcome surname entries for all locations. 
We now have the capability of allowing people to contact you through our surname listMembers and Non-Members alike can contact you for information about your surnames. However, they cannot see your contact information as the email is generated automatically and forwarded to the email address you have on file with D-OGS. It is important to keep your email address updated with the membership chair(In the future we will be able to edit our own contact information, but for now, please forward all changes to membership@dogsnc.org)
