Where you can cultivate your family tree

Welcome to ACAGS

Audrain County Area Genealogy Society

Come join us to help celebrate the 30th year anniversary of our society at an open house Oct 18, 2017 from 2 to 7 P.M.


You will get see our new reader/printer and the new microfilm we are slowly acquiring.  The room has been rearranged for more room on the shelves and better to see who enters the room and needs help.


Just a note to say it has been a busy summer with researchers stopping by and request for research.  We are indexing newspaper clippings again, adding information about the old schools as we find and paste.


We are collecting soldiers information and getting into notebooks so it available to the people who are interested.  We have Civil War information thanks to Joan Potter, Randy Senor and Francis Quisenberry. Going through the old newspapers on microfilm we have been finding WWI soldiers, Spanish - American Soldiers, and clipping papers is providing us with Viet Nam, Korean, WWII and other soldiers who have served or are serving our great nation.


November Meeting is featuring Don Shire talking about his new book.


December Meeting is Soup on the 2nd Saturday from 11 to 1 PM.


January Meeting is come and do research.

The memory of war is upon us. April 6th, 1917 President Wilson declared war on Germany to bring the United States into the first World War. St. Louis Post-Dispatch 04-06-1917
