The Villages Genealogical Society

Membership Information


Membership in The Villages Genealogical Society and its programs is limited to residents of The Villages, Florida.

Membership is $10 for the year's annual dues – our membership year runs Janurary-December. A New Membership fee of $10 is payable upon submitting your application for membership. Those joining during the last four months of the year will receive the balance of the membership year for free and their dues will be credited to the following year. Example: someone joining and paying their dues in September would be considered paid through December of the following year.

Applications can be obtained and completed at any monthly meeting of the Society. Monthly meetings are usually the fourth Wednesday of the month at 10:00 a.m. Due to Thanksgiving, the November meeting may be held either on the 3rd or 4th Wednesday. There is no meeting in December. All meeting dates and times are subject to change. See "Coming Events" for exact dates and times for all our activities. Applications can also be downloaded and mailed to the Membership Chairperson – see the application link below. Applications can be obtained but are not accepted at Special Interest Group meetings.
Funds collected are used for the Society's activities, including guest speakers, material handouts, and the purchase of genealogical resources and equipment.
Each member is entitled to attend the general monthly meeting of the Society and any meetings held by VGS Special Interest Groups are included with your VGS Membership Fee.
Each member receives the Society's monthly newsletter via e-mail and has access to our website "Members Only" section. All members also can participate on our "Social Media."  Learn more about the Society in our "New Member Welcome Packet."
