AFGS has been collecting obituaries since 1978. We currently have nearly 200 volumes with 500 pages in each volume. These obituaries are received from all over the country and are a valuable asset. Hard copies can be found in the library and they will also appear in the Members Only section. Each volume has an index. Every five volumes have a separate index. Finally, every fifty volumes has an index. Many of the obituaries have pictures as well as helpful information.

AFGS is an all-volunteer non-profit organization. As such we look to members who have specific skills who are willing to help the society maintain its excellent standing as a premier genealogical and historical organization. We are planning to distribute a survey by email to our members outlining the specific skills we need. Many volunteers from around the country working from home on a variety of projects. You need not live locally or visit the society to make a difference.
