Welcome to the Red River Valley Genealogical Society Web Page!
RRVGS is a society comprised of family historians a lot like you. We
are beginners to seasoned veterans with both local and worldwide
interests and expertise. We would love to help you with your research.
On this web page we have online searchable databases, we list our
brick-and-mortar library holdings for the region, we offer research
services and sell our publications and other genealogical products. You
may join our society or hire us to help you document your ancestors or
you may purchase our publications to conduct your own research.
Any way we can, we help.
The geographic area of coverage is the Red River Valley of the North
region of North Dakota and Minnesota. Please see the map for a list
of the counties we cover:
Our next business meeting is April 18 2015, at 10 AM at the Genealogy
