VGA Chapters & SIGs

VGA has local chapters for members living in that area, or members with an interest in genealogical research and events in that area. Chapters are utilizing Facebook groups for networking, socializing, and mentoring.

VGA also has special interest groups (SIGs) for members with an interest in researching a specific historic area, ethnicity, or topic (meet-ups are not coordinated within SIGs but within chapters).  SIGs also utilize Facebook groups for networking, socializing, and mentoring.

Paid VGA members are welcome to join as many chapters or SIGs as desired at no extra cost.  If there isn’t one listed for your area of interest, and you’re interested in leading one, please contact us!
