President’s Message, April 2016

As we move from winter into spring, you probably have to-do lists that involve research away from home.I for one like to go to different locations and not just on the internet. There is something about opening up those old books that gets to me. Perhaps you plan to visit a cemetery or two, whatever […]

President’s Message, February 2016

Do you get asked “Aren’t you done tracing/chasing your ancestors yet?” The uninformed persons ask these questions obviously. If they only knew, for every question answered, more appear.

President’s Message, August 2015

Is everyone as busy as I am this summer? From what I hear I think so. Before I went to the Genealogy Fair in Augusta I got to do some research in Skowhegan. That fair was well attended and we talked to lots of people and now many more know about ACGS and what we […]

Doing varying amounts of research on soldiers were: Allen, Ann, Barbara, Dennis, Frances, Linda, Orlan, Spike and myself. Linda has spearheaded this work, doing all the typing, doing a lot of the research and […]
