Welcome to The Virginia Register!
We first learned of The Register when Amy's parents, Merle and Gail Taylor, became the editors for the Maryland paper. They loved publishing the paper and encouraged Amy to pursue the Virginia paper, which at that time needed an editor. Advertising, marketing and newspapers are almost second nature to Amy, and we became more seriously interested in the idea as we began talking more and more about having
children. The newspaper would offer Amy a way to spend time raising our children while also having a job she'd enjoy. That was June, 1999 and our first Virginia issue was July-August, 1999. We now publish five Register papers: Virginia, Florida, Maryland, New York, and Pennsylvania/West Virginia. Amy's parents publish The Registers of Delaware/New Jersey and Indiana. Our children, Rachel (born in 2000) and Grace (born in 2005) have been here through it all. We really do have a Register Family!
