Message from President, Caron Tait
Whether you're a novice beginner or a seasoned genealogist, please enjoy and explore our new website. We have great folks who are diligently expanding and improving the site.
The VCGS Board and I extend to you a warm welcome to come and enjoy the monthly programs at the Ventura Family History Center, participate in the activities, workshops and our yearly seminar.
Our free regular monthly meetings are normally held on the third Saturday of each month from 1 to 4 p.m. Visitors are always welcome - hope to see you there!
VCGS general meetings are hosted by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at 3501 Loma Vista Rd in Ventura, which is located at the North end of Mills Rd.

Representing the members of hundreds of genealogical societies across the United States and other nations, the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) is here to link the genealogical community and help its members grow.
Founded in October, 1982, the California State Genealogical Alliance serves as a statewide association of independent genealogical societies, individuals, and non-profit organizations.
Half of your total paid will go to support the FGS and hundreds of local member societies that need your help!
