The Albuquerque Genealogical Society is a non-profit organization, founded in 1972, with three main goals:

The Society offers frequent workshops and classes to beginning genealogical researchers.  The Genealogy Center in the Albuquerque Main Library at 501 Copper, NW is the meeting place for most of the AGS sponsored computer user groups and several research groups.  All are free and open to the public.  The latest information can be found in "Upcoming Events" and "Special Interest/Research Groups"

The Quarterly is a quality publication that we are proud of, published February, May, August, and November.  It sponsors an annual "Writing Contest" for members to enter their stories about research, family lore, breaking brick walls or other genealogy-related themes.  Winning entries are published in the Quarterly.  An important component is the "Early Albuquerque Series" about families that settled here at the turn of the century and before, what the times were like in the "olden days" and descriptions of the town when it was small.  The Quarterly features articles and tips on research and much more.  Members are encouraged to share brief items of interest or websites they find in their research in the "I discovered. . . . Series".  All upcoming events are announced in the Quarterly.  A hard copy is available to members by mail, or they can choose the optional electronic version.

In cooperation with other local genealogy organizations, the Society subsidizes the Special Collections Branch (genealogy and local history) of the Rio Grande Valley Library System in its acquisitions. Each year the Society purchases books, microfilms, and microfiche for patron use.

We hope this web site will get you started in doing your family history research online.  If you're not a member, join our Society and come to visit with us at our monthly meeting and/or receive our Quarterly newsletter.  If you're a beginner at genealogical research, stop by the Genealogy Center in the Albuquerque Main Library at 501 Copper, NW and let one of the Volunteers help you get started.

Limited FREE parking is available in nearby parking facilities. Click on PARKING to learn more.

Remember, the research you do today will benefit all the future generations of your family.  This research will be part of your legacy.
