  • MPAAGHS Membership Dues - Support the operation of MPAAGHS by becoming a part of our circle of friends who share a passion and respect for African-American genealogy and history, especially that of Virginia's Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck. MPAAGHS membership is $20 per calendar year.
  • MPAAGHS Historical Highway Marker Fund - The Virginia Historical Highway Marker program documents facts, persons, events, and places prominently identified with the history of the nation, state, or region. As of 2019, only a few hundred (12%) of more than 2600 state markers focused on African Americans. MPAAGHS decided to work on increasing these numbers. MPAAGHS received approval for and subsequently dedicated the Stingray Point Contraband marker, noting the 1861 self-emancipation of six enslaved men in Middlesex County, Virginia. MPAAGHS continues its quest to further diversify the marker program and has identified multiple topics that warrant highway markers. Contributions to the Highway Marker Fund will defray the $1,770 cost of each highway marker.
  • MPAAGHS General Fund - Your donation to the MPAAGHS general fund will help to support special projects such as our funeral programs project, transcription projects, speaker honoraria, and various public programs.
