Kalamazoo Valley Genealogical Society
Kalamazoo Valley Genealogical Society -- Kalamazoo, MI

Welcome to the KVGS website!

We serve historians and genealogists who are interested in the Kalamazoo River Valley region - and around the world, too.  Join us!

President's Message

 Join us for the June 21 Online Scavenger Hunt and the June 28 Skills session about the Michigan Pioneer Certificate program. These will be the last programs in the 2020-2021 year.
Members and guests can now register for our Feature Programs and Skills Sessions here on the KVGS website.  Click on the EVENTS PAGE tab at the left-hand side to see the calendar then select the event(s) you'd like to attend.  The registration link is listed for each meeting. After you've registered, you'll receive a confirmation email with a "click to join" link.  Keep the confirmation email until the evening of the event.  Then "click to join" on the link in the confirmation email.  Members will continue to receive an invitation to register by email a few days before each event.
This is renewal time!  If your are a member, please log-in the MEMBERS area and renew there.  If you are not yet a member but want to join, use the BECOMING A MEMBER tab at the left and join that way.
Have a wonderful summer with visits to cemeteries, libraries, and historical societies - and come back in September ready for another year of KVGS meetings.  The Board has no idea if those will be in-person or on Zoom.  Watch for email from KVGS to keep you updated.
Jan Wright, President
