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 on the research trip to Washington, DC, October 25-31, 2020.  This year's trip is organized through the Portage Senior Center.  Each day the bus will drop off and pick up researchers at the DAR library, the National Archives, and the Library of Congress.  Click on the RESEARCH TRIPS tab then select Washington, DC for the registration form and more details. Others on the trip will tour DC instead of researching - so bring a friend or family member along with you.
 
The February 17 general meeting will be a "field trip" to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at 1112 North Drake Road on the west side of Kalamazoo.  All parts of the evening - Skills Session, refreshments, and main program - will be there where there is excellent streaming from the LDS website.  Join us as we learn research tips for familysearch.org, how to navigate the "One World Family Tree," and discover the variety of information available on the Family Search wiki.
