Biographical or historical data
  • The Virginia Genealogical Society (VGS) was founded in 1960 with a mission to "promote and foster family history education and research, publish genealogical information, and share accumulated knowledge."
  • The Virginia State Library was created by an act passed by the General Assembly on January 23, 1823, to establish a public library. From 1823 to 1828, the Library was under the control of the governor and council. In 1828, the General Assembly created a joint committee on the library to oversee its administration. The Secretary of the Commonwealth served ex officio as state librarian from 1832 to 1903. On May 15, 1903, the General Assembly passed an act that created a library board to administer the library, authorized the deposit of public records in the library, provided for the publication of historical records by the library, and established a library fund for the purchase of books and private papers. The Library Board, which was responsible for naming the State Librarian, was itself appointed by the Board of Education. The General Assembly passed an act on March 29, 1944, transferring the power to appoint the Library Board to the governor. The Virginia State Library adopted the name, the Virginia State Library and Archives, in early 1987 to more adequately reflect its mission and purpose today. In July 1, 1994 the name was changed to The Library of Virginia.
