Southern Echoes - AGS Monthly Newsletter
For our 30 years as a Society, Southern Echoes has kept us informed each month with what is going on in our organization, in the genealogical community, and among our members. It has covered the miracles (we not only believe in them, we depend on them!) that covered our every crisis and our cliffhanger search for a permanent home that ended 10 years ago when we were within 24 hours of being out in the streets. Its 10 pages cover book reviews; queries (free to members, and on a space-available basis for nonmembers); Surname-Area Search Files for making contacts with other family searchers; recaps of our monthly lectures series of genealogical/historical presentations by noted speakers; local, regional, and national genealogy news and announcements; gift lists of books, etc. to our library; alerts to scams; Council Meeting minutes to keep everyone informed of where we've been and where we're going. They have been so popular, and of enduring value with book reviews, queries, Surname Search Files, that we have them indexed and bound each year and offer them for sale.
Ancestoring Monograph Series (AMS)
AGS has published some beautiful books in its Ancestoring Monograph Series (AMS): Quaker Records in Georgia , Wrightsborough 1772-1793, Friendsborough 1776-1777, containing minutes of the Quaker congregation which settled in (now) McDuffie County, near Augusta, in the late 1700's. Included are intriguing day-to-day accounts of the troubled Revolutionary War times (which Quakers referred to as "the commotion") and births, marriages and deaths; 1860 Census of Edgefield County, SC; 1860 Census of Abbeville County, SC; Summerville Cemetery, Augusta; Index to City Directories of Augusta, Georgia 1841-1879, compiled in 1991 by Ray Rowland, lists all entries found in extant directories published for: 1841, 1859, 1861, 1865-66, 1867, 1872, 1874-75 and 1879; Irish Nativities in Magnolia Cemetery, Augusta; Ancestoring I-X Index; When Your Ox is in The Ditch - Genealogical How-to Letters (You'll laugh and learn through all 135 letters!)
Southern Echoes Monograph Series
A second Monograph Series was established 12 years ago, with the publication of our first "how-to" volume (with the anticipation of more how-to books in the future). The outstanding success of the first volume of Southern Echoes Monograph Series, When Your Ox is in the Ditch: Genealogical How-to Letters, by Vera McDowell, resulted in Genealogical Publishing Company acquiring reprint rights. It is now in its second printing with GPC.
Wonderful reviews of the book pleased our members (who received a copy of the book when it was published, as a benefit of membership). The announcement by the Connecticut Society of Genealogists that "Ox" had won a first-place award in their annual literary competition was icing on the cake!
The book may be had from GPC, 1001 No. Calvert St., Baltimore, MD 21202. Tel. (410)-837-8271 or Fax (410)-752-8492.
