Welcome to the Tennessee Valley Genealogical Society! We are a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting interest in genealogical research. Membership is open to anyone with a genuine interest in research, novice and expert alike.

TVGS was founded in 1966 and coordinates various activities of interest to family researchers in the Tennessee Valley area. We currently are publishing original documents from the court houses and other sources for the counties of Madison, Marshall, and Jackson Counties. We continue to maintain an inventory of past publications of Valley Leaves for the nine North Alabama counties that the Tennessee River passes through: Colbert, Franklin, Jackson, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, Marshall, and Morgan.

Benefits of Membership:

When you become a member of the TVGS, you receive a subscription to Valley Leaves, our genealogical publication. Each issue contains articles and information of interest to family researchers. In addition, we host quarterly meetings and an annual spring seminar. Review our Calendar to keep informed of our upcoming activities. The most compelling reason to join the TVGS is the friendships you will establish with fellow researchers in the area. Those with a new interest in genealogy can learn from experts, and the experts can share the wealth of their experience. Membership is from July 1 to June 30 of the following year.

If you would like to join TVGS, please complete the membership application and mail it, along with a $30.00 check or money order to:
