The conference will take place at two different sites within the state. On 19 April, participants can join the society’s experienced researchers who will furnish guided research at the Library of Virginia in Richmond. The day-long program on 20 April will occur at the AshCreek Clubhouse in Mechanicsville, where featured speakers Barbara Vines Little and Vincent T. Brooks will discuss colonial Virginia research, Virginia resources for Kentucky researchers, Virginia resources for West Virginia researchers, and the Virginia/Pennsylvania border controversy.

     Registration fees prior to 1 April 2013 will be $40 for VGS members and $50 for non-members; after that date, the cost will be $50 for members and $60 for non-members.
