Research (or Focus) Areas:
  • The Rogue Valley Genealogical Society (RVGS) is located in Southern Oregon in the Rogue River Valley. Initial settlement in the valley was spurred by a gold strike in Jacksonville Oregon, thus accounting for our logo, the happy miner who represents the activity of digging for gold in genealogy records. RVGS was founded in 1966 and now owns and operates the Jackson County Genealogy Library (JCGL), the largest collection of genealogical materials in Southern Oregon.
