*** Spring Meeting cancelled ***

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Spring 2020 meeting has been cancelled.

We are considering the possibility of a virtual meeting (via "Zoom" or something like that) in the future. If you have ideas, we would love to hear from you. You can write us, or contact the email at the bottom of this page, or email the President - (see the "About Us" button.)

As of April 2020, the New England Historic Genealogical Society has created a database of Vermont Genealogy, up to the issues of the past 5 years. This database is also accessible to GSV members - click on the "GSV Members" button (and enter your membership number and name).


Note, we now have the ability to accept payment for membership renewal and donations by Paypal. Please use the "Membership Form" link under "Membership Information."

The Spring 2020 (vol 25 # 1) issue of Vermont Genealogy is currently at the printers and hopefully will be mailed to members by the end of June 2020.

The Table of Contents for this issue is shown via the Publications button. Note also that the editor's comments for recent issues have been posted. This gives some information about the articles in that issue.

Check out our Queries page and see if you can help anyone!

Vermont Vital Records 1909-2008

Ancestry.com now has Vermont Vital Records from 1909-2008 available. This is a great new resource, especially for our members living far away from Vermont. The database includes births, marriages and deaths, and includes the images that would be seen if you had access to the microfilmed records at Vermont Archives. For those who have researched at Vermont Archives, you know of the frustrations of trying to decipher poor microfilm images. The records have all been digitized and should be much easier to view.

VT Families in 1791 Project

The Vermont Families in 1791 Project is under the new editorship of Jonathan W. Stevens, a professional genealogist and the current President of GSV. The format to be used in Volume 3 has been updated, and is based on the standard used in Vermont Genealogy, but with inline notes for citations. Submissions for census entrants should be 2 to 4 pages in length, and should be thoroughly documented. For the format to follow see this example. For further information regarding format and submissions, the editor can be reached at stevens@vermontel.net.

(See under "Publications" for families listed in Volumes 1 and 2.)
