In addition to our own AGS publications, our collections include records, manuscripts, books, microfilms, and maps from not only Georgia and surrounding states but also resources from around the country and around the world that reveal our history. The Adamson Library now has access to interlibrary loan materials from the Library of Virginia and is a FamilySearch Affiliate Library.

It’s no secret that the society has existed this long because of Carrie Adamson, our first President. Until 2006-2007, she invested herself 24 hours a day seven days a week to make the Society one of the best in Southeast. Thanks also belong to the long list of volunteers, membership, and community leaders who assisted her along the way. The Society sponsors frequent virtual programs and our annual Symposium, which is an all-day seminar to provide knowledge to our members. AGS has published several books and continues to publish Southern Echoes, our quarterly newsletter. We continue to meet the mission of Augusta Genealogical Society based on the 1979 vision of our founders.
