Shenandoah Valley Genealogical Society
Helping You Find Your Family in the Valley
Shenandoah Valley Genealogical Society, founded in 2003, serves all genealogists researching family records in the Shenandoah Valley. This area includes counties formed from Augusta and Frederick Counties that generally hold the watershed of the Shenandoah River. These counties are Augusta, Berkeley (now WV), Clarke, Jefferson (now WV), Frederick, Rockingham, Shenandoah, Page, and Warren Counties. We will sometimes include news from five West Virginia counties that were in old Frederick County, but not in the watershed area. They are Grant, Hampshire, Hardy, Mineral, and Morgan Counties.
The Society is a nonprofit corporation authorized by the State Corporation Commission of Virginia and exempt from Federal Income tax under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions are tax deductible as a public charity under Section 170 of the Code. Feel free to review our bylaws.
Our mission is to:
(Please note that we will be seeking some new officers or appointed positions for 2015-
