Welcome to the new website of the Rogue Valley Genealogical Society & the Jackson County Genealogy Library. We now have one website rather than two, but both of our old addresses, rvgslibrary.org and rvgsociety.org will bring you here.

From this site, you can search all of our records with our new search engine by using the Search menu on the navigation bar. You can also search our library of over 19,000 books and other media by selecting Catalog from the Library menu. The most recent news and events can be found in the sections below on this page. 

This site is a work in progress. We have launched it with a limited data set. If you can't find what you're looking for, go to our archived old website. If you find an error or have something to add to the website, email webmaster@rvgslibrary.org.

Don't be afraid to explore. If you can't find what you're looking for, just use the Contact link on the navigation bar.

Happy digging!
