JVFOA Annual Meetings


Every year Vicks from all over the world and members of the Joseph Vick Family of America organization get together to educate one another on DNA & Family Research and enjoy each others company. The extended family meets each year at a location identified with the Vick family; Vicksburg, Mississippi & Isle of Wright, Virginia, but we have had annual meetings in the past at the following locations; Paducah, Kentucky, Salado, Texas & Fort Wayne, Indiana. We will be meeting in Suffolk, Virginia for 2017. At these annual meetings JVFOA members and the community are educated in classes on family genealogy, family research and DNA testing. Members receive the JVFOA quarterly newsletters as their main source of sharing information.

5-7 PM Annual dinner -Hampton Inn - Speakers; Have you ever wondered what life was like for our Vick ancestors, living in Colonial Virginia? Life was challenging and each day posed many obstacles that we contemporary Americans may take for granted. From those first days when Joseph Vick of Lower Parish, Isle of Wight County arrived to seek his fortune and fame in the New World, until the colonization of Virginia finally gained a stronghold, there are many stories to share and opportunities to learn how our ancestors lived and prospered. Please join cousins K.T. Vick, II and Frank Vick in a keynote presentation on the Colonization of the Vick family of Virginia and a social retrospective of colonial life for our ancestors. K.T. and Frank will share historical observations of what it was like to live during the 17th and 18th centuries in colonial Virginia. The duo will also describe the local histories and folklore of the birthplace of many Virginia Vicks. The cousins will facilitate a discussion to provide you with opportunities to share your research of your ancestors. KT Vick & Frank Vick subject: Colonization of Vicks in Virginia (historical perspective of Joseph's Virginia and our family's presence in the Commonwealth, as seen through the lens of social history)
