Amelia Island Genealogical Society Inc.

The mission of the Amelia Island Genealogical Society is to support its members and others in their efforts to learn about their family history, and to develop resources regarding the genealogy and history of Nassau County, Florida.

The 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. We also have other unique programs, including tours of the old cemeteries in the area which we sponsor periodically. The society maintains a large collection of genealogy material at the Fernandina Branch of the Nassau County Public Library for public use.

The Amelia Island Genealogical Society is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit, tax exempt, public charity, incorporated in 1998.
