      Program: The Benefits of WVGS Membership
      Speaker:  Members of the WVGS

   We will be going over some of the many benefits of membership in the WVGS. Topics will include: 
  • Our website's features – what resources are there and how to get at them 
  • The scholarship program – what’s available and how to enroll 
  • Our help exchange program – topics offered and how to connect with a member. The diversity of our membership’s knowledge is a huge asset you can use when you get ‘stuck’. 
  • Resources available at the library – our reference library, personal research help, and access to genealogical subscription sites 
  • The publications stored at Candalaria – how to schedule access to them 
  • Discounted research assistance - including obituaries, newspaper articles, birth, marriage and death records, etc. 
In addition, we also offer people interested in genealogy an opportunity to meet and discuss their interests and experiences with like-minded individuals on a monthly basis.

               We hope you will join us -  invite your friends.
              WVGS programs are always open to the public.
