The Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society (AAHGS), Inc., Metro Atlanta Chapter was established in February 2000.
We are part of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society, Inc., a national non-profit membership organization of diverse membership committed to the preservation of the history, genealogy and culture of African-ancestored populations of the local, national and international communities. Presently, there are 39 chapters in 20 states and the District of Columbia.
Those words, spoken near the end of the last century between two
new acquaintances (Monica J. Hackney and Doris Posey) served as our Chapter's catalyst.
That curiosity and interest in family history, along with chance (and later scheduled) meetings of similarly minded persons, resulted in what is today a fluid and active group of individuals. We share tracing the life paths of our family lines, tackling the mysteries of family stories, photos and documents.
We are of myriad backgrounds researching our ancestors in a variety of states and localities, not just the ones shown here.
No matter which state(s) or country you trace back to . . . no matter what fortunes or misfortunes, or stations in life in which you or your ancestors found/find yourselves . . . everyone's search begins with those simple words. Read more.
