Your Dues Make a Difference:

Your membership dues allow the Hans Schmidt Family Association to continue researching our family history, to preserve our heritage, and to produce illuminating exhibits and presentations. Without your contribution to the work that we are doing, our family history would be lost.

How to Pay Offline:

If you would like to pay offline, you may write a check for the corresponding amount, with the name of the person or organization whose dues are being paid in the memo line of the check. The check should be made out to “Hans Schmidt Family Association” and mailed to:

Hans Schmidt Family Association
c/o Josiah Schmidt
3170 Willow Bend Drive
St Charles, MO 63303

After the check has cleared, you will shortly receive a confirmation and a communication of your username and password for your online HSFA account.

* The association president or treasurer reserve the right to reject business/organization membership to businesses or organizations with inappropriate, non-family-friendly, divisive, or partisan natures. If such a determination is made, the funds will be refunded to the business or organization, minus any processing fees.
