Introduction & History:


The WVGS became a Society with initial planning of Loran Braught and Ronda Parks. They put the wheels in motion so to speak and as of Monday 12 July, 2004 the Society was officially established. One of our main goals is to keep the Society informed. Communications strengthens and give all the opportunity to stay in touch with our Board of Directors, committees and members. This website along with the newsletter (Wabash Valley Generations)  hopefully will enable the Society and all to keep up to date on meetings, trips, workshops, and a variety of educational events.

 The Society is looking forward to hearing from you. You can contact us at our e-mail address . If you are not familiar with our Society, and your first contact with us is online, please let us know what your needs and questions are; we will try to help.

In brief, you should know the following about us: Our Society meets at the Vigo County Public Library, rooms "A, B & C", the second Monday of every month at 6:00 pm. The library is located at 7th and Poplar Streets in Terre Haute, Indiana. The address of this Society is:  Wabash Valley Genealogy Society, P.O. Box 7012, Terre Haute, Indiana 47802-7012. The Society does not maintain a fax number.

The dues are to be $15.00 per year for regular membership if you have email communication. If a person does not have email and wants a copy of the bi-monthly newsletter and other Society news it will cost $25.00 per year. There will also be a family membership if more than one person lives at the same address. The cost of family membership will be $20.00 per year if they have email or $30.00 per year if they want one copy of all the news mailed to their address.
