Welcome to the Fredericksburg Regional Genealogical Society
The Fredericksburg Regional Genealogical Society (FRGS) serves area residents who are researching their personal genealogies, wherever that family history may hail from. The Society also serves as a central repository for information about regional genealogical resources. We invite you to explore this website for information about FRGS and to explore the area's rich information sources.
The Fredericksburg Regional Genealogical Society (FRGS) meets the second Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the Salem Church Branch Library, 2607 Salem Church Rd., Fredericksburg, VA 22407. Our meetings feature presentations from local and regional genealogists and discussions about our own research successes and brick walls. The public is welcome to join us for an evening of genealogy with your fellow family history researchers and to consider membership in our society.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM FRGS
We hope everyone has a Safe and Happy Holiday Season and a Prosperous and Healthy New Year!
There is no meeting in December, so we will look forward to seeing you in January at the Saturday Meeting.
