Genealogical Activities of the Society
The genealogical programs of the Society are historically some of our most active. Presently, they are somewhat hampered by limited access to the Library collection, but that challenge is easing as the collection is cataloged and placed on open shelves. Services include advice on basic genealogy, citation format, and referrals to Augustans worldwide. There are also several special projects in action.
Genealogical activites include:
The Genealogy Committee is the body responsible for approving lineages. Such lineages are requirements for membership in some of the Society's lineage groups, and as raw data for the Family of Augustans project. The small staff could use some help from qualified genealogists.
This Study Group is dedicated to connecting the genealogies of Augustans to one another. Given that after a dozen or two generations, the number of one's ancestors is larger than the world's population, consanguinity is almost a certainty. This group is now in the process of converting fifty years of paper lineages into a computer database. New lineages are welcomed, as are additional members.
