About Us

Welcome (Croeso) to the Welsh-American Genealogical Society (WAGS) web pages.  WAGS - the place to begin or continue your family history research, or to learn more about the people of Wales, their customs, their traditions, their history, and their wanderings.

        WAGS is incorporated and registered in the State of Vermont, Office of the Secretary of State, as an educational, non-profit organization.  Served entirely by volunteer staff, its purpose is to offer guidance to members researching their Welsh roots, bringing them together with others with similar interests.  WAGS is registered as a non-profit organization under Internal Revenue Code Sections 501(a) as described in 501(c)(3), 509(a)(1) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) retroactive to September 1, 1990.  Donors of gifts and bequests may deduct contributions as provided in section 170 of the Code.
