Year 2016

November 26, 2016
Members wrapped up the year being brought up to date on the developments of the AAGS study groups. Reps from each special interest group (Beginning Researchers, Georgia, and Alabama) reported on progress made in 2016, including the compilation of family stories being finalized in book form by the Alabama group.

October 22, 2016
It was refreshing to have Sunny Morton provide our membership with her upbeat and fact-filled presentation, “What’s So Special about Special Censuses.” Who knew there was so much history behind these schedules? Her clues, examples and resources gave ample reasons to check out agriculture, mortality, slave, manufacturer, veterans, and social statistics as they help bring details to our ancestors’ lives. A handout of resources is available on the "Members Page.”

September 24, 2016
At the September meeting, AAGS members took a look at the blended identities of Native Americans and African Americans in U.S. history. After viewing the film “Black Indians: An American Story,” the group discussed individual heritage, personal perspectives and research resources--complete with movie popcorn. A handout of resources is available on the Members Page.

July 23, 2016
In July, Dr. Deborah Abbott steered the AAGS group on the road to successful genealogy by covering the advantages and benefits of attending “Genealogy Conferences, Workshops, Seminars and Webinars” and provided information on the many resources available near, far, and online.

June 25, 2016
Janet McCaulley, from the Summit County Historical Society, gave AAGS members a lively look of ‘days gone by’ at the June general meeting. With a myriad of artifacts, she regaled the audience with interesting stories from "Grandma's Attic and Grandpa's Garage."
