Welcome to the Fredericksburg Regional Genealogical Society, affectionately known as FRGS (pronounced “frogs”).  FRGS was organized in August 1993.  We are located in Fredericksburg, Virginia.  The Society includes members from the greater Fredericksburg area and others living as far away as California.            Officers

Our mission is

  • to bring together people interested in Genealogical research and promote fellowship and cooperation among them be they a beginner or a professional
  • to collect, preserve and disseminate genealogical knowledge and information
  • to stimulate and provide instruction in the use of proper methodology and adherence to standards of accuracy and thoroughness in research
  • to promote preservation of records and resources of the area which have genealogical value
 We are currently meeting the second Wednesday of each month (no meeting in July & December) at 7:00pm at the Salem Church Library here in Fredericksburg, Virginia. To get to the library (from town) take Rt. 3 west to Salem Church Road and turn left.  The library is about a mile or so on the left.  Go in the front door; we usually meet in one of the rooms on the left.  Meeting times and place are subject to change, so if you are coming from out of town you might want to call someone to check.  We occasionally do field trips to the downtown library when they are having a program that pertains to genealogy also.

2011 Officers are:

President David Dorsey
Vice President Trip Wiggins
Recording Secretary  

Treasurer/Corresponding Secretary
