CANCELLED – VGS Family History Expo

March 25, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT

We’re disappointed to have to announce that The Villages Genealogy EXPO, which was set to be held 25 March 2020 at the Savannah Center, has been canceled. In recent days, major vendors have canceled their attendance because of corporate “no travel” policies during the period of uncertainty about the coronavirus. Other vendors canceled because of personal health concerns, while some vendors expressed concern that possible low attendance numbers would make it economically unfeasible for them to be part of the EXPO. Out of concern for the physical and economic health of our vendors and for the health of our fellow genealogists in The Villages and the surrounding Central Florida area, we made the decision to cancel the event.
We look forward to being able to invite you to our next Genealogy EXPO!
