Current News Releases

February 2020
           The Temecula Valley Genealogical Society is proud to announce they are currently accepting essays for their annual scholarship contest. The scholarship award this year is $500. The essay contest is open to any graduating senior in the Temecula / Murrieta Valley area, whether attending public, private, or home school.
           This year’s essay topic should be of particular interest to students. It is “My Covid Experience - A Letter to Future Generations.”  In their essay, students are asked to describe how the global pandemic impacted their life, to explain what they learned about themselves and their family through it, to reveal how the pandemic changed their perspectives or attitudes, and to consider if there were any positive things that came from their experience.
           More information concerning the scholarship contest can be found on the Temecula Valley Genealogical Society’s website, TVGS.net.  Questions may be directed to TVGS President Susan Puma at swpuma@puma-appsci.com.   All entries must be received by midnight May 2, 2022.  The scholarship winner and their family will be invited to a TVGS member meeting to receive the award and read their essay.
           The TVGS was founded in 1998 as a nonprofit corporation with a mission to provide public education on matters related to genealogical science, as well as a forum to exchange genealogical information and stimulate interest in family history research.
TVGS has monthly meetings at the Ronald H. Roberts Temecula Public Library.
Guests are always welcome.  Membership is $25.00 per year, and to get the full benefit of a year full of activities with the TVGS, now is the time to apply.   For more information, use “Contact” on the TVGS.net website.
           One upcoming TVGS event of public interest is the Salt Lake City genealogy trip.  For more information on this event, watch for more information to be published in the next few weeks, or contact TVGS President Susan Puma at swpuma@puma-appsci.com .
