Our new VGS website is found at the same web address: victoriags.org

Registering for a membership, enrolling in a workshop and joining a special interest group is now a lot easier! The new website also works much better on tablets and smart phones.

All current and past VGS members received a welcome note on June 15 that provided them with a temporary username and password to login to the new website. Many have already logged in to renew their membership, which is now due.

If you’ve never been a VGS member, you are invited to visit our website at victoriags.org and join the VGS by selecting the “Membership” menu and then choosing “New Member Signup.”

All existing newsletter subscriptions will be automatically moved to the new website, so there is no need to re-subscribe.

If you have any problems, questions or comments about the new website, please email them to Website Support via our Contact Us page.

Please consider helping VGS when you shop for groceries at Fairway Market stores. VGS is now enrolled in the Fairway Market Community Card program. It's easy for members and non-members alike to participate. Pick up your free card at the Victoria Genealogy Learning and Research Centre.

Fairway Market donates 5% of all amounts loaded onto cards to VGS on a quarterly basis. You can spend 100% of the funds you load onto your card at Fairway Market (you lose nothing).
