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, get invol Meeting
