Virginia Genealogy Calendar
Harold’s List of Genealogy Events has ceased publication on the internet. VGS has established a Google calendar called Upcoming Virginia Events to replace it. This calendar is available now on the VGS web site home page. Look in the left side bar for the link. Click the link to open the Google calendar in a new window. Then navigate from month to month to find genealogical events you may be interested in.
VGS Spring Conference Speaker Notes
Anne Mitchell, the speaker for the 2015 VGS Spring Conference has graciously made available to the public her slides from the conference.
Research facilities throughout Virginia offer genealogists opportunities to put flesh on the bones of their ancestors, as well as the opportunity to break through brick walls in their family research. VGS governor Kate Parker has compiled articles on over 40 statewide, local, and regional repositories throughout the state. Each article includes contact information, hours available for research, collection holdings, and recommended preparation before a visit.
What's New on the VGS Website
From time to time VGS will add new content for the Virginia genealogist to its web site. While some content will be for members only, much will be for the general public. New content will be announced through VGS’ Google group email. VGS recommends that you subscribe to this group if you would like to be kept apprised of additions. You can find a subscription form at the bottom of the home page.
