Preserving the History and Heritage of Families throughout Alabama

We believe it is imperative to foster, encourage and promote genealogical research and preservation by and through

  • locating, acquiring, and organizing genealogical records, materials and publications about Alabama and its people;
  • encouraging continuing education in the gathering and exchanging of information, and through publications;
  • bringing together likeminded passionate genealogists with interests in the 67 counties of Alabama for the express purpose of strengthening genealogy with respect to mutual statewide issues, interests and concerns;
  •  the enrichment, enjoyment and satisfaction of its members through its activities.
