Twelve Years of AVC Stories Indexed

Each Ark Valley Crossroads, the society's quarterly newsletter, is available to read and even download on this website. WGS Members can reach them via the Members Only Records under the RESEARCH tab, you must be logged in to see them.

However, we just completed an online index of all the articles since 2010—over 350 of them.  Everyone can browse the list of articles from the AVC Newsletter Index under RESEARCH Tab and a few are free examples for non-members.  All the articles can only be reached by logged-in members. Click here for AVC Index.

The articles are grouped by type of genealogy topic, including Records, History, Family History, Methods (of research), and Abstracts (reprints).

There is a wealth of knowledge in the newsletters that are worthwhile browsing and reading.
