Upcoming Events



Program for Wednesday,  August 8, 2018 (10:30 A.M. to Noon)  at the

Main Library Community Room, 501 Copper NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102   505-768-5141

Title:  Summer Stories and Book Sale

Speaker:  Everyone!

Description of Program:

This month we have our annual storytelling meeting.  Since many of us are in families who are not enthusiastic about family history research, we need to take time to listen, encourage, help, rejoice, or sympathize with each other.  For this meeting, we circle up in small groups that allow everyone to tell about their recent genealogical adventures.

This is also the time for our annual Book Sale.  Don't miss it!

Title:  Brick Wall Strategies

Speaker:  Marianne Eaton and Panel of Members

Description of Program:

Genealogical brick walls are inevitable — those dead ends where we're sure there are clues to go further but can't think of how to find them.  What can we do?  We need to review old techniques and add new ones to our bag of research tricks.  Marianne Eaton and other AGS members will share their brick wall breakthroughs.  Their experiences may be just the help you need.

Title:  "Show and Tell" at the Holiday Party

Description of Program:

Our annual holiday party is a great time of fellowship as members bring heirlooms or items of genealogical interest and tell of their history or special meaning.  We encourage attendees to come in costumes of their native lands or in the clothing of an ancestor.  Members are also invited to bring a holiday dish to share during the party time.  We love to end the year on a high note!
