Saving Money with Society Memberships - Part Two

This article is in a series of posts for the 93rd Carnival of Genealogy. I have decided to write a series of articles about saving money by using genealogy society memberships. Today I will discuss ways that you can save with your memberships. Then I will have two posts with examples and on Friday, I will ask you to submit your own examples to share with everyone.
