Welcome to all old and new perusers of this homepage for the Augusta (Georgia) Genealogical Society (AGS).
In the following pages we provide information on the types of resources we offer, including our publications. We welcome all historians, genealogists and others seeking family information to visit our library. Our address is 1109 Broad Street, and our telephone number is 706-722- 4073. Attendees of our HOMECOMING meeting are invited to spend time in the library that weekend, whether they are members or not. Otherwise, if folks wish to make more than one visit to the library, we request that they either join the Society or make a small contribution to the Society. We depend on membership fees, sales of publications, and donations to keep this enterprise afloat.
We want you to come here and explore our resources for yourselves. For those who cannot visit us, our various publications, including our monthly “Southern Echoes,” may hold some of the answers you have been looking for. So look at these pages, and see for yourselves if we offer something that may help you.
We also hope that any of you who live near here and are able to do so will volunteer to become Librarians-of-the-Day or join the “Friday Group” who perform a variety of duties.
