THE OLD PIKE POST is the Society's quarterly newsletter. It is mailed to all members. Included in the newsletter are queries (no charge), names of other members (for networking purposes), stories of genealogical interest, historical items of note, and lists of new publications obtained by the Society, among other items. Queries are also printed in the local newspaper; please send a Self-Addressed, Stamped Envelope to receive a copy of published article.
Back issues of the Old Pike Post are available for purchase. There are four issues per year, and as of this year (2009) there are 25 previous years of issues.
