Programs are usually held on the third Saturday at 2:00 pm four times a year in the months of February, May, August, and November in the Athens-Clarke County Public Library Multipurpose Room A, but variations in this schedule are not uncommon. Special events and activities are usually held in months without meetings, and may include local after-hours research events, carpooling to out of town programs, research field trips, expos, holiday celebrations, historical preservation, etc. Although most programs are free and open to the public, membership is encouraged to enable us to bring in quality speakers that will help further our understanding as family history researchers. Dues are also used to purchase resources for local libraries and offset costs to preserve historical data.
