SUNDAY, JULY 29, 2018 - 25TH ANNIVERSARY EVENT

Ristorante Renato, Fredericksburg, VA
Key Note Speaker - Therese Fisher, Accredited Genealogist, Professional Researcher and Author
Cost - $40 per person

The Fredericksburg Regional Genealogical Society is celebrating 25 years of service to Fredericksburg and the surrounding communities. The Society was organized in 1993, with a Mission of encouraging genealogical research, sharing genealogical knowledge, educating members on methods and standards, preserving genealogical records, and promoting fellowship among its members. Our membership changes, we have changed meeting places, and updated our Logos over the years; but our Mission remains the same.

The first meeting of the Society was called to order on July 29, 1993 by Interim President, Therese Fisher, who is the Key Note Speaker at this Milestone Event. She will be sharing memories of the early days of the Society. If you would like to join us, please follow the link to our website, where you can use PayPal or a Credit Card to make your reservation. https://www.vafrgs.org/fgrs25th/
