See's Candy Fundraiser

We are doing a See'’s Candy fundraiser this year to help pay the rent on the Research Center. It is a great way to do your holiday shopping early and support your genealogical society at the same time. We are offering a variety of chocolate assortments, from 4 oz. stocking stuffers to one and two pound boxes and gift certificates. Click here for the order form. Please mail the completed order form with your check payable to AVGS to:
AVGS
P.O. Box 1049
Lancaster, CA 93584

or bring it to the Research Center or the September, meeting, Kin-Dig or the November meeting. Orders are due no later than the November 12 meeting and we will distribute the candy and gift certificates at the Reseach Center sometime during the first week of December.

About AVGS

Antelope Valley Genealogical Society, Inc. (AVGS) was organized in 1976.

Our purpose is to encourage an interest in genealogy, preserve genealogical materials, and assist researchers with their research techniques. AVGS is a non-profit organization. Donations are always welcome - cash, library materials, genealogy books and histories, or your time.

Our Sponsors

We would like to thank our sponsors, who support AVGS by advertising in our directory. Please see the Sponsors page.

Research Center

AVGS has its own Genealogy Research Center housing a growing library collection of over 600 books, periodicals, and CD-ROMs. The library also offers computers with a high-speed Internet connection and free access to Ancestry.com. We welcome everyone and will help them with their research. We offer genealogy workshops in the Research Center periodically.
