Genealogy Queries

CVGA will print queries in the Heritage, in the order received free for members, or $2.00 each for non-members. The editor reserves the right to edit submissions, but will try to publish all information relevant to the query. The editor reserves the right to refuse to publish any query submitted and does not assume any responsibility for errors of fact in the query. As you compose your query, please bear in mind that space is limited.

Genealogy Research

Since its inception the association has established a library of genealogical and historical works, periodicals, pamphlets, and manuscripts. This collection is housed in the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society Library.

While CVGA does not conduct research for others; we may be able to find persons who will perform this service, though no endorsement is intended or implied.

Computer Interest Group

The Computer Interest Group (CIG) usually meets once a month at Northside Library. Meetings use a wide variety of formats, from roundtable discussions to speakers/demonstrations on specific techniques. This "CVGA Web Site" is a CIG project.

We also exchange information on our closed email list . If you wish to be considered for membership in this list, send an email to Convener (see below)

The Central Virginia Genealogical Association (CVGA) was formed in July 1977, to encourage, foster, and organize genealogical research, teaching, publishing, education and recording. CVGA received its charter as a non-stock, non-profit corporation from the Corporation Commission of the Commonwealth of Virginia on 21 September 1977.
