The Village Genealogical Society was first established in 1987. We are an organization of persons engaged in one of the most interesting and creative pastimes in the United States. Because of our community mainly being a retirement community, our members have settled here from a wide range of places. As a result, their research extends worldwide. Their experience ranges from the most advanced genealogical researchers to those that are just beginning the search for their roots. VGS seeks personal involvement in making membership a meaningful and satisfying experience and also offers a variety of ways to provide support. The Newsletter, published monthly, contains many articles of interest. Beginner and intermediate genealogy classes are conducted frequently to provide a sound base for those beginning their research. These classes focus on enhancing research skills and give students a chance to ask questions and resolve problems that they might be encountering.
The highlight of each monthly meeting is a special presentation on some aspect of research designed to build knowledge in tracing family history. Genealogical books, research materials and CD-ROMs are available in the Coronado Center Library for everyone to use. Monthly breakfast meetings are held for a more personal approach and to provide a chance to meet other members. Here we exchange ideas, develop solutions to research problems, and just have a good time interacting and talking about our common love of genealogy.
Anyone interested in family research is welcome to visit our meetings. We hope you come and get involved.

Our last meeting for the year will be Thursday, May 4. I trust you'll all
have a nice summer and spend some time on genealogy. Our speaker
for the May meeting is Karen Russ, on "What Did Grandpa Give You
Besides the Gold Watch? - Medical Genetics & Genealogy." Karen serves
on the Board of the Arkansas State Genealogical Society.
Be prepared to vote on our new Board Members. Nancy Holder is on our
slate for Newsletter Editor and Mitzi Hunter is to be voted in for Assistant Newsletter Editor. I
will ask for any nominations from the floor. If you have someone in mind for a position, please
speak with them and get their okay before nominating them.
Barbara Pinkney will be announcing some of the speakers for next year. If you have any other
ideas or preferences I'm sure she would love the feedback. It's been a pleasure serving you this
year. Thank you for your support.
