Please feel free to contact us with your questions about The Masonic Society. However, please keep the following in mind:
What we are:
The Masonic Society is an independent Masonic research organization. We study the history, philosophy, symbolism, and other aspects of the Masonic Fraternity. Our members' research is published in our quarterly Journal of The Masonic Society.
What we are not:
We are not a Masonic Lodge, nor are we a Masonic Grand Lodge. We do not confer any degrees or orders of Freemasonry. We do not provide genealogical, historical, or directory service information for any part of the Masonic Fraternity, except insofar as such information may be relevant to research conducted by our members.
If you are looking for information on joining a lodge of Freemasons, or have general questions about the Masonic Fraternity, please see our page entitled "How to Become a Freemason". Beyond that, we recommend a judicious Internet search -- or, simply approach your local lodge. At least in the United States, Masonic Lodges are usually listed in the telephone book and often have square-and-compasses signs on their buildings.
Specific information or forms for any particular Grand Lodge must be obtained from that Grand Lodge, or from one of its subordinate lodges.
If you are looking for Masonic genealogy or history for specific persons who may or may not have been Freemasons, please contact the Grand Lodge in the jurisdiction where you believe the person was or may have been active as a Freemason. Here is a list of Grand Lodges in the United States and Canada.
If you still need to contact us:
The following general contact categories are available:
Thanks for your interest and your understanding.
