Shenandoah Valley Genealogical Society
Shenandoah Valley Genealogical Society, founded in 2003, serves all genealogists researching family records in the Shenandoah Valley. This area includes counties formed from Augusta and Frederick Counties that generally hold the watershed of the Shenandoah River. These counties are Augusta, Berkeley (now WV), Clarke, Jefferson (now WV), Frederick, Rockingham, Shenandoah, Page, and Warren Counties. We will sometimes include news from five West Virginia counties that were in old Frederick County, but not in the watershed area. They are Grant, Hampshire, Hardy, Mineral, and Morgan Counties.
