Welcome to the Vermont AHGP new home on the web. My name is Judy White and I will be taking care of this site until a new State Coordinator steps forward!! Things will stay pretty much the same as they were, except we will add new information, new county coordinators and needed repairs.

Genealogy Village is the new home for AHGP Vermont, you can visit them at Genealogy Village. If you are in need of FREE space for a genealogy site, I am sure you will be welcomed.

Maybe you would like to know a little about AHGP, they have been around since 2000 and a couple years ago I started taking care of the website, we have kept all the requirements in place which are pretty easy to do.  Take a look at the About Page.  Besides the county pages they have Project and Topic sites, you may have a pet project of your own you would be interested in having others read, let us know we would be pleased to add you to the site.


Montpelier, on Winooski river, 38 miles east south east from Burlington, is the capital.

Vermont is a hilly or mountainous country. To the distance of from 5 to 10 miles east of Lake Champlain the country is moderately uneven, and generally very fertile. A chain of mountains, called the Green mountains, from which the state takes its name, runs almost the whole length of the state, being in the south part from 10 to 15 miles wide, with some intervening valleys. Near the centre of the state the range divides into two parts; the western continues n., and, though broken, has the highest summits; while the eastern passes in a n. e. direction, in an unbroken chain. It is a curious fact that this immense barrier has a passage through it, without even any high hills. The southern branch of Onion River, which flows into Lake Champlain, has its source very near to if not in the same swamp with the head of White river, which flows into the Connecticut. The road passes along these streams from Burlington through Montpelier to Hartford, Vt., without any considerable elevations or depressions, and is called the valley road, presenting much grand and beautiful scenery. It passes near the base of Camel's Rump, one of the highest peaks of the Green mountains. Before the mountain divides, Killington Peak, 3,675 feet above the level of the sea, is the highest summit, but there are two higher summits after it divides, which arc in the western range. These are Camel's Rump, on the s. side of Onion River, which is 4,18S feet high, and Mansfield Mountain, the highest of all, on the n. side of Onion River, which is 4,279 feet high. The land in the part of the state e. of the mountain ridge is more hilly than that on the western side. Read more...
