What Rules Us
The Fairfax Genealogical Society (FxGS) was established in 1974 as a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to promote fellowship and cooperation among persons who are conducting genealogical research and aid those doing research in our area. We currently have over 500 members, including not only many who live in or near Fairfax County, but also many who are searching for information in our area. Although the Society is based in Fairfax County, many of our members are not local natives, and so our research interests are not only local but nationwide and also worldwide. You may see our Bylaws, Standing Rules, and Position Descriptions below.
