The Fairfax Genealogical Society Newsletter (ISSN 0895-2078) is published five times a year (September, November, January, March, and May) that keeps Society Members informed of upcoming events of the Society and other local societies and research facilities. It also includes book reviews, surname queries, and articles and announcements of genealogical interest.
Members receive the Newsletter in print by mail or electronically by e-mail, depending upon preference. Current and past issues of the Newsletter are available electronically to Society Members on the FxGS Members site.
The Newsletter is indexed in the PERiodical Source Index (PERSI) of the Allen County Public Library Foundation.
The Newsletter was recently awarded an Honorable Mention in the National Genealogical Society's 2011 Newsletter Competition in the County or Local Genealogical or Historical Society Newsletter category. This runner-up award is a great tribute to all those who have provided articles for the Newsletter over the years.
We encourage the submission of articles and news items of interest to genealogists, particularly Bible records. Transcriptions of records related to Fairfax County are particularly needed. Review copies of new books are welcome.
Please address all newsletter submissions, inquiries, and reprint requests to the Society by mail or e-mail:
