Grand Lodge policies concerning access to membership lists
The information on this chart comes from various sources. If anyone has definite information for additions or changes on this chart, please send email tome at paulb'at'bessel.org so I can update this chart.
Brother George Brooks of Florida surveyed Grand Lodge policies on allowing a new freemason to receive or see a written list of members, if the Craft Lodge allowed it.
He reported that only 5 Grand Lodges reported a policy on this, and the policy was to prohibit any lodge to give or show a membership list to anyone, including members of that lodge. They are:
Grand Lodge of Florida
Grand Lodge of Massachusetts
Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania
Grand Lodge of Virginia
Grand Lodge of Washington
