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:

Genealogy Committee

The Genealogy Committee is the body responsible for approving or certifying 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.

Descents from Antiquity Study Group

Orignally a project to determine whether any of the then outstanding theories of relationships between the Dynasties of Egypt and Charlemagne were valid. (All have been disproven; a report will be forthcoming.) Pending new theories worthy of investigation, this group is presently dormant.

Family of Augustans Study Group

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.
