Get Ancestry Help at July 22 Meeting

The Amelia Island Genealogical Society (AIGS) will hold its monthly meeting at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, July 22, in the computer lab of the Fernandina Beach Branch Library, located at 25 N. Fourth St.

The program will be a unique opportunity for all those who are researching their ancestry to learn about the use of the online subscription to the Ancestry Library Edition (ALE).

ALE contains resources like censuses, vital records, family histories, military records, court and legal documents, immigration records, directories, photos, maps and more.

Participants will be given the opportunity to use this free resource during an online workshop in the library’s computer lab. If you bring your own device, you may use the library’s free Wi-Fi to access ALE.

This is the second program in a series to showcase the resources of the AIGS and the Nassau County Public Library System. The AIGS provides partial funding for the subscription to ALE.

Attendance is free and open to the public. For more information about the AIGS, visit its website at
