AGS ADAMSON LIBRARY
AGS maintains its own genealogical library, with maps, manuscripts and almost 10,000 volumes of local and out-of-state reference material. It also has Ancestor Chart Files and a Surname-Area File, indexed by family names to help you make connections with others searching the same lines. Additionally, it has other non-catalogued items including the Mims and Mealing Collections, a microfiche collection, and audio tapes. The AGS Adamson Library also contains the DAR Collection of the Augusta Chapter, NSDAR.
The AGS Adamson Library is located at 1109 Broad Street, Augusta, GA. To make sure the library will benefit them, visitors are invited to use it on a one-time basis before they join the Society. The library hours are: Monday & Wednesday: 10-4; Saturday: 9-1; and Sunday: 2-5. The library is closed Easter Sunday, July 4th, Labor Day and December 15 until 1 January.
We are sorry, but due to our limited number of volunteers we are not able to conduct research or answer research inquiries for nonmembers at this time; however, if you visit our library, volunteers will be happy to explain to you how our research material is organized and assist you in finding what you are looking for.
