The Fairfax Genealogical Society was founded as a not-for-profit in 1974 to provide educational opportunities to the genealogical community; to promote cooperation and support among genealogists; to encourage sound genealogical methods, standards of accuracy, and scholarly research; and to aid those doing research in the national capital area. The Society has over 450 members, who meet for lectures, educational programs, workshops, and field trips. The Society also hosts two annual events.
