2023 AIGS Budget

At the October AIGS Board Meeting (10/12/22), the proposed budget for 2023 was reviewed and adopted by the Board. The proposed budget will be presented for approval by the AIGS membership, at the Annual Meeting on November 15, 2022, 7pm (Fernandina Beach Public Library, 25 N 4th St, Community Meeting Room). 2022 has been a rebuilding year as we ramped back up our meeting programs and classes. We saw a growth in membership, not quite back to pre-COVID levels, but trending that way. In building the budget for 2023, we have forecasted a continued growth in membership. To meet our projected expenses (increasing as well), we expect a small draw from 2022 carryover funds may be necessary; this is reflected in the proposed budget shown below. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Looking forward to seeing you at the Annual Meeting Patti MillageTreasurer, AIGS Proposed Budget...

2023 AIGS Membership Renewal

October is here already!  It has been a year of recovery for AIGS after the 2021 COVID impacts.  We have grown our membership numbers from 83 (2021 year end) to our current count of 122.  The 2022 monthly meeting presentations have been quite varied, both in topic and format – we’ve had a great combination of in-person and virtual (live) presenters, covering subjects including DNA, local land grant and Fort Clinch history, ancestor research, the history of the US Census, and military records research. There is one more meeting this year – please join us for our November program!

The Nassau County Genealogist

The Nassau County Genealogist  – Change in Year-End Mailing Procedures

Considering increased postage and printing costs, the AIGS Board has made the decision to discontinue the automatic mailing of The Nassau County Genealogist issues remaining in members’ folders at year end.  This will apply only to members who reside locally (Nassau County); mailing will continue for out-of-county and Organization memberships. We are requesting that local members pick up their quarterly publication copies from their folders at our monthly general meetings.  If you are unable to attend the monthly evening meetings or there are other extenuating circumstances, and you are interested in having your copies, please contact the Membership Chair at membership@aigensoc.org to make alternative arrangements.  One possibility is for us to leave your copies at the Fernandina Beach Library front desk to be picked up during regular library hours.  We appreciate your understanding in this matter.  We look forward to seeing our local members at an upcoming monthly meeting!...

AIGS Volunteer Opportunities – We Need You!

For any organization (large or small), there’s always more work to be done than there are people to do it. For some situations, it’s just a matter of hiring more people to get it done. However, non-profit groups such as AIGS, have no paid staff and depend entirely upon volunteers who share common interests, to provide their organization’s services. AIGS has been in a rebuilding phase the last couple of years (recovering from the impact of COVID) with focus on growing back our membership and providing quality genealogy programs and classes. And we need our members’ help to continue to move forward! Volunteer opportunities are many and varied! Time commitment can range from a one-time shot for limited minutes (e.g., Research-Help Committee), to a couple of meetings for a one month period (e.g. Audit Committee), to a monthly meeting (or less frequently) for a couple of hours (e.g., Library, Program and Membership Committees). Some efforts can be accomplished from your own home (e.g., Data, Publicity, and Web Committees) and some get you out working actively with others (e.g., Cemetery and Education Committees). There really is something for everyone with a wide range of experience and skill levels needed! This month you will find a Volunteer Interest Form in your member folder. Please take a couple of minutes to review, complete and return the form. AIGS needs your help to be able to offer ongoing resources/services for our members. A little goes a long way! Please don’t hesitate to contact a …
