Shenandoah Valley Genealogical Society

Helping You Find Your Family in the Valley

Shenandoah Valley Genealogical Society

Shenandoah Valley Genealogical Society is a nonprofit organization for people interested in researching family history records anywhere in the world. We just happen to be located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.

After December 31, 2016, SVGS will be absorbed under the wings of the Friends of Handley Regional Library and all programs will be hosted by the Stewart Bell, Jr. Archives. 

Our programs promote the use of sound genealogical practices. Meetings are normally held at the Handley Regional Library Auditorium in Winchester, Virginia on selected months between October and April. Contributions are tax deductible under Section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Thank You to Our Loyal Supporters

The SVGS Board of Directors would like to thank those who have been loyal members, whether for the past 14 years or one. The Shenandoah Valley Compass Newsletter, issued by the SVGS, has been discontinued due to a lack of volunteer involvement. Also, SVGS will no longer have an official membership, but will continue with four to five speaker programs a year. We will accept donations at our programs to help offset the expenses for the speakers. Donations are appreciated, and keep our programs free and open to the public.

Our organization does not offer research services.

We hold a close and appreciative association with the Stweart Bell Jr., Archives of Handley Regional Library,

Winchester, VA, where you can request assistance in researching your Valley ancestors. 540-662-9041.
