The Virginia Genealogical Society was organized in 1960 to foster interest in genealogical, biographical, historical and heraldic research; to publish information pertaining to genealogy; and to share genealogical methods, techniques and knowledge among the members of the Society.

VGS offers two genealogical conferences each year in the Spring and Fall. VGS also offers the Virginia Institute of Genealogical Research (VIGR) each year in August. VIGR consists of two tracks, one for the beginning Virginia researcher and one for the more advanced Virginia researcher.
