Hello, my name is Carol LaSalle and I am the the coordinator of the ABCs of Genealogy Special Interest Group. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month from 2:30 to 4:20 p.m. at the SeaBreeze Recreation Center. There are no meetings in June, July, August and December.

The ABCs of Genealogy SIG is for VGS members with any level of experience in genealogical research The sessions are geared to be easy to understand to get you started and keep you going as you discover more about your ancestors. The genealogy society also has other resources on this website and you are encouraged to use the "Research Links" which will provide you with valuable assistance to continue your research.
