2013-2014 Membership Directory Now Online

The Gypsy Lore Society interactive Membership Directory, updated for 2013-2014, is now online on the Members Only section of the web site.


The membership directory is presented as an aid to increased communication among scholars and others interested in Gypsy Studies.


The directory, compiled by the Treasurer, was produced in printed form from 1979 to 2012 as a service to Gypsy Lore Society members.


In its current form, the directory includes the same types of information as in print. The sources are the questionnaire filled in by new members and subsequent additions and corrections. It has not been possible to fill in more than basic contact information for those members who have not completed questionnaires online.


Get to Members Only from the link on the public web site, www.gypsyloresociety.org, or directly at https://sites.google.com/site/gypsyloresocietymembersonly/.


You must have a Google Account to access Members Only. Creating a Google Account is easy and free. Sign in to Members Only using your e-mail address.


Once you have a Google Account, let the Treasurer (sheila.salo@gmail.com) know the e-mail address associated with that account. The Treasurer will then send you an invitation to access Members Only.


Hint: If you use several e-mail addresses, please register only one address for Gypsy Lore Society correspondence and site access. That will be of great help to the volunteer administrators.


Searching the directory


Search the directory by using Control-F; the "search this site" box will not search the directory.


Editing your entry


You are the final proofreader  of your own entry.


You are invited to edit your own entry online. Add your publications (up to ten items) and research interests.  Just click on “edit.” Only the Treasurer may edit the "membership" column.


If this method does not work, you may use the Interactive Membership Form instead to change or add to your entry.


You may add and correct your entry on an ongoing basis. The directory is  revised in February of each year, lapsed members being deleted, and new members added.


Please note


To advise the Treasurer of new contact information, please use the Change of Address form or write to sheila.salo@gmail.com. That way you can be sure of receiving your issue of Romani Studies, the Newsletter of the Gypsy Lore Society, and other correspondence in a timely manner.
