Membership Database and Directory

The Society for Military History is pleased to announce the unveiling of our improved membership database system in affiliation with Event Rebels. Members can now access a self-service portal to renew their memberships, change their mailing addresses, and update their directory listings. A log-in and password will be sent by email to access your membership records.

SMH members can exclude their names and contact information from the online directory. To opt out of the Directory, either log into your membership record and check the appropriate box, or email the Society at Any changes will be reflected in the next monthly update of the Directory.

The membership directory, which will be updated on the Society for Military History's web site every month, is provided as a convenience to SMH members. The contents of this directory can be searched using Adobe Reader's regular search feature and the document can be printed for personal use. However, to protect the directory from being easily exploited as an impromptu mailing list, the text contained within cannot be selected, copied, and pasted into other programs.

IMPORTANT NOTE 1: Outside parties have used our freely-available directory to subject Society members to spam and phishing attacks. Therefore, the directory can no longer be viewed by members of the general public and is now password protected. The password is the same as the password members receive quarterly from EBSCO for accessing The Journal of Military History online.

: Testing has revealed that searching the directory works only with Adobe Reader. If you are a Mac user and use Preview (the OS X default PDF reader), the search function will not work. Those users can download an OS X version of Adobe Reader.
