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 an overview of Scottish genealogy when Cheryl Cavalear presents "Scottish Genealogy: a Primer" on October 18. Then on October 25, Dick Nuss will speak about "Ancestry Tips and Tricks."
The general meetings for September, October and November will be via Zoom.  The Skills Sessions for the entire year will be on Zoom, as will the Board meetings and Special Interest Groups.  If you are a member and need a review of Zoom, log-in and click on the RECORDINGS section of the website.  A brief Zoom intro from last year is there for you to watch. Only members have access to the program recordings.
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 BECOME A MEMBER tab at the left and join that way.
Jan Wright, President
