AGS 2020 Virtual Genealogical Symposium
Saturday, 8 August 2020
9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Augusta Genealogical Society is happy to announce that our 2020 Annual Symposium has been refashioned for distance-learning. We know that many of you were looking forward to the in-person experience AGS has offered for over 40 years. However, with the state of the pandemic, and in the interest of our many volunteers and guests, we feel the safest choice is to carry on virtually. Enjoy this live event from the comfort of your home.

Join AGS, Saturday, August 8, 2020 for a day long webinar with Diane L. Richard and honoring our female ancestors as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment. Topics for the day will be as follows:

The Story of Rachel:A female slave with 2 children who was finally manumitted about 1800 after 20 years of court cases [rough draft is attached]. The story of a formerly enslaved woman and those involved (mostly 2 daughters of Rachel’s former owner).

Born in NC & Living Elsewhere: Making the Connection Back:Some rules of thumb and strategies for research into those born NC individuals to determine where in NC they came from. Also shared will be a select list of records that are key to this type of NC research with a discussion on what makes them so invaluable.

Women in Ledgers/Geography, Politics, Religion & More:Many women are listed in these records – crossing a toll bridge, getting merchandize at the general store, being attended to by a physician, and P.O. records.

On the Road Again: Are Your Ancestors Hiding in Road Records?Roads were built and maintained by the local community; thus, the members of the road crews were appointed by the county court. The records of these crews and the work they performed include details about your ancestor as well as the FAN Club (friends, associates, neighbors) working with them.
