The VFA newsletter is published 4 times each year. Issues vary in length and are focused mainly on genealogy, including pedigrees, in-depth studies, family history, queries, summaries of primary and secondary sources, obituaries, and other items of interest submitted by the membership. Only members of the Vance Family Association receive newsletters on an ongoing basis, although back issues are available for purchase to non-members.
