Welcome to our blog!

This picture was taken at our Developing Research Strategies Workshop that was held at the National Archives (Southeast Branch) in Morrow, GA on Saturday, March 17, 2012.  See blog article entitled "Genealogy Workshop Tackles Family Murder."

      WELCOME to the blog of the AAHGS-Metro Atlanta Chapter. We are a chartered member of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society, Inc. The purpose of this blog is to highlight the accomplishments of our organization and its members, disseminate information about our activities and events, and to share some genealogical jewels that will benefit all who are interested in genealogy research.

     This growing group was established in February 2000 as a vehicle of exchange and support for genealogical research by co-founders, Monica J. Hackney and Doris Posey, and a group of eight other local genealogists, family historians, and novice researchers.  Presently, we boast a growing membership of over 100 members!

     The major objectives of AAHGS-Metro Atlanta Chapter are as follows:
·         To provide a forum in the Metro Atlanta area for the sharing of historical and genealogical information and research sources about African Americans.
·         To organize workshops and a speakers' forum to meet the needs and interests of chapter members.
·         To compile research that will preserve African American history in the United States.

     Thank you for visiting, and we hope that you will follow our blog and be informed about our exciting activities, as well as many genealogical happenings!
