GVTS History:

The Genesee Valley Treasure Seekers Metal Detecting club began in 1990 with six members interested in the hobby. Initial meetings were held at the VFW in Charlotte, New York and two years later moved to the First Baptist Church of Chili in the suburb of Rochester, New York. The club since has grown to over sixty members across western New York and is comprised of working / retired singles, couples, and children memberships.

We are a very active club in support of the hobby as well as the community. Additionally, we are proud members of the Federation of Metal Detector & Archeological Clubs, Inc. (FMDAC).

Club Info:

Our meetings are usually held monthly at 10:00AM the 1st Saturday of each month. Please note: At our meeting on Saturday, November 5, 2022 at 10:00 am Mark Schuessler will present a talk about buttons. Mark is the current President of the Federation of Metal Detector and Archeological Clubs Inc. (FMDAC) and has decades of experience detecting, cleaning and identifying buttons.
Mark will discuss general information for button identification and cleaning. He will have some buttons both military and civilian, button books and a couple handouts to help you out.
Please feel free to bring along your buttons to display. He will do his best to help you ID any of them.
