VGS Members Only - Submit Updates to Surname Index
FOR VGS MEMBERS ONLY
We want to help you connect with others who are researching the same surnames as you are. As a service to our members and to all genealogy researchers who access this site, we launched a project in October, 2010 to recreate, enhance and maintain this online Members Surname Interest (MSI) index.
On December 8, 2010, the old index was totally replaced with new information submitted by members, and continues to be updated as batches of new submissions are received.
ALL MEMBERS ARE REQUESTED TO SUBMIT THEIR SURNAME INTEREST INFORMATION, EVEN IF YOUR SURNAME INTEREST INFORMATION PRIOR TO DECEMBER 2010.
We are currently offering two ways for VGS members to submit their surname information for this online index:
- Download the Members Surname Index (MSI) form - PDF format, print it, fill in your information, and send this paper copy to us - drop off at the Resource Centre or general meeting. If you have a scanner, you can scan the completed form and submit via email if you prefer.
- If you have MS Word, download the Members Surname Index (MSI) form - DOC format, fill it in on your computer using MS Word, and submit via email.
Both types of forms include instructions on page 2 - be sure to read them before completing the form.
Thank you for helping us. We will keep you posted on our progress via our email bulletins.
