TERMINATION OF THE GVGS FACEBOOK PAGE
Due to lack of member participation, and our excellent & popular GVGS website, the Board decided to shut down our Facebook site. Remember:  the right hand side of the Home page on our website serves as the GVGS "Bulletin Board" announcing our society's upcoming events along with other events that may be of interest to our membership. Check our website regulary to keep up to date on genealogy events.

Submit Your Family Photos for Display on Our Website

GVGS members are encouraged to submit family or historical photos for our website. Images selected will appear in the photo bar at the top of the Home page. These photos change each time visitors go to a new page on the GVGS website. To submit your photos, you'll need to scan them – make sure the resolution of the image is the best you can get. Then, send an email to our Web Manager identifying the people in your photos and attach your images. (Web Manager's email address is webmgr@azgvgs.org)
