Every year individuals from all over the world attend the Joseph Vick Family of America Genealogical Society. For 3 days speakers give presentations to educate the society on roots research and how to use all the modern tools that are at our finger tips (DNA). In the past we have gathered together to meet at a different location identified with the Vick family; Vicksburg, Mississippi & Isle of Wight, Virginia, but we have had annual meetings in the past at the following locations; Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Paducah, Kentucky, Salado, Texas & Fort Wayne, Indiana. In 2020 we launched started broadcasting our meetings on Zoom.com so that anyone would be able to be educated virtual.

We are broadcasting Video & Audio live. Connect to our conference on Zoom.com - use your computer or smart phone by clicking this link;

Safety is always an important factor in our events, especially our annual meeting logistics. As everyone knows COVID-19 is one of our primary concerns for meeting together this year.
Our outcome from our JVFOA Board discussion was that there were too many risks in having our members traveling (particularly on the airlines) and managing mandated social distancing. So because of these risks we have decided to have a Virtual only Annual Meeting that will be broadcast to our JVFOA members via Zoom.com
So make sure that your membership dues are current, that way when we send you the Broadcast link on Zoom.com you will be able to remain online during the scheduled speakers.
