Do a search for your area's Grand Lodge, all the sites I have seen have a How to Join, link.

Joining the masons has nothing to do with birthright or anything like that. Simply locate your local lodge and knock on the door. More than likely you will find some friendly people who will help you on your way. All you have to do is ask. Nothing really much to, but to do it!
Good Luck, I am heavily considering joining soon myself.

At the risk of repeating what Star and Crescent just said, I'd like to repeat it


Becoming a Mason has nothing whatsoever to do with line of descent. Any man of mature age who believes in a Supreme Being (of any kind) is entitled to apply to become a Mason. Their are other criteria (such as being a generally good person) that determine whether that individual will ultimately be admitted or not.

It is not necessary that anyone be related to a Mason in order to join the fraternity, nor or you asked this on your application for membership. The only requirements are that potential candidates for membership believe in a Supreme Being, and, in the language of the fraternity, be a man, free born, of lawful age, and under the tongue of good report.

Can I become a mason without taking the oath to the death?

What "oath to the death" are you talking about? Are you talking about the solemn obligations of the three degrees? If so, no, you can't. Would you expect that you should be able to?

You can become a Mason the same way John Wayne did (and everyone else who has ever been so honored throughout history).

Nice going ML, there's nothing funnier than some one spewing anti-Masonic rhetoric while using a John "That's right pilgrim, I'm a Mason" Wayne Avatar. Guess we'll just have to focus on his lack of content now.

Aw guys, I feel cheated...don't you? The Masons never offered me an "oath to the death" when I was initiated, passed OR raised...

I am a 26th consecutive MM in my family and did not know anything about until one month when my dad and fellow relatives "tapped" me on my 21st birthday, but this is not a requirement.

Good Luck, hope all goes well
