The Fredericksburg Regional Genealogical Society was organized in 1993 with the mission of encouraging genealogical research, sharing genealogical knowledge, educating members on methods and standards, preserving genealogical records, and promoting fellowship among its members.
Meetings are normally held the second Wednesday of each month (except Jul/Aug/Dec) at 7:00 p.m. at the Salem Church Branch Library, 2607 Salem Church Road, Fredericksburg, VA 22407. Meetings typically feature a guest speaker and cover a variety of genealogical topics including:
- research on specific ethnicities, countries of origin and geographical areas
- technology tips
- local and national research facilities
Some meetings are devoted to round table discussions where members share success stories, bring up brick walls for discussion and advice, and talk about their current research focus.
Annual dues, used to compensate outside speakers and support genealogy programs and projects, are $20 per person or $25 per family. Student membership is free (with student ID).
