Are you interested in history and genealogy? You are invited to join the Autauga
Genealogical Society (AGS). Although our primary focus is on the old Autauga counties
of Autauga, Elmore, or Chilton, you don't ave to have roots in Autauga County or
even Alabama to benefit from membership in our organization.
Our objective is to promote, collect, and preserve the genealogy and history of Autauga
County. We have an extensive collection of information housed in the Alabama Room
of the Autauga-Prattville Public Library and are continually working with the library
to purchase more books. Much of this data is also available on-line. We encourage
you to send us your family charts and data so that they can be shared with your fellow
Except for the months of June, July, December, and occasional field trips, meetings
are held the third Sunday of each month at 2 p.m. at 131 North Washington Street
behind the Primary School and across the street from Saint Mark’s Episcopal Church.
Our programs range from local and Southern history, genealogy, and culture to other
topics of interest to genealogists and historians. Visitors are always welcome.
AGS membership is $20 per household and includes:
Quarterly Autauga Ancestry magazine
Free queries in the Ancestry (non-members $3.00)
Yearly membership edition with surnames registry
Speakers and programs of interest to genealogists
Periodic field trips and workshops
Hope to see you at our next meeting!
“Genealogy helps satisfy a deep need to understand how we fit into the broader world
around us. From this perspective, genealogy is more than just a collection of single
family threads that go through time. Genealogy truly is a journey of many lifetimes
woven together from the past, the present and (from our perspective) the future.
Genealogy is a popular pastime and it is important because, ultimately, it lies at
the heart of the human condition."
