The Amelia Island Genealogy Society sponsors an extensive course for new members interested in learning more about the genealogy process during January and February of each year. At monthly meetings of the society, the members take part in workshops, or listen to presentations on a variety of genealogical topics to increase their knowledge. The Society also has other unique programs, including tours of the old cemeteries in the area, and maintains a large collection of genealogy material at the Fernandina Branch of the Nassau County Public Library for public use.
The 5-week course meets Saturday beginning January 5, from 9:30 a.m. to noon at the Fernandina Beach Library Community Room, 25 North 4th Street. Cost is $40 per person, or $65 per couple and includes a 1-year AIGS membership. (Cost is $15 for AIGS members.) To register, contact Larry Conte at (305) 926-2978.
