Hello, my name is Christine Courtwright and I'm the coordinator of the New England Special Interest Group. We meet the third Thursday of the month from Noon until 1:30 p.m. During 2021, our meetings will be held via Zoom. There are no meetings June through August. If you have a question about this SIG, send me an email with your question and I will respond as quickly as I can. 

This is an informal the group with information being shared to help all members achieve their research goals. Members should bring ancestors names and anything they know about them to the meeting. Many members have found their ancestors but many are still researching or have met the brick wall. Laptop computers are encouraged so actual research can be attempted online during the meetings.

Members should expect to share and bring in any information they have found that may help others in the group with their research. You must be a member of The Villages Genealogical Society to participate in our meetings.

Parts of New York were part of Vermont until 1777 when the state lines were defined.
We have included New York records since New England research often overlaps into New York.
