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.

For further information, contact our president.

October 2016 Meeting

Nancy Holder - Migrant Train Presentation


     The October HSV Genealogical Society meeting featured Nancy Holder speaking on "Emigrant Trains and Railroads". This was an interesting topic that was unfamiliar to many of us. We left with some great history and research ideas. We continued our "Genealogy Gems" with Bill Patterson and Mary Fisher reading letters from their ancestors. Barbara Pinkney explained a new "Brick Wall Question Box" that will sit out at the refreshment table each month for anyone who would like to fill out a form. Board members will take turns answering member's questions or helping with search ideas before the next month.
