Help Us Meet Our Goal

Our family tree - The Tree of Life - has been a major source of encouragement for providing our members an opportunity to say 'thank you' to our ancestors who planted the seeds from which we grew.

Welcome to the ACGS Web site  --  Our 41st Year!


Founded in Manchester, New Hampshire in 1973, the Society is here to serve your genealogical research needs.

Catherine Baillon

In 1999, we were fortunate in having the opportunity to publish an excellent article on the well researched line of Catherine Baillon:
René Jetté, John P. DuLong, Roland-Yves Gagné, and Gail F. Moreau. "From Catherine Baillon to Charlemagne." American-Canadian Genealogist 25:4 (Fall 1999): 170-200.

Through the generosity of the surviving authors we have obtained permission to make this article available on our website.  To read or download this article, simply click on this link.

Our appreciation to John P. Dulong for making this possible.

Our Building Has Undergone Repairs!

We have embarked upon a substantial effort to repair the outside of our
library building.  The major work done is replacing damaged/cracked bricks, re-pointing, cleaning and sealing the exterior of the building.

We have incurred an expense of $100,000 in doing these necessary repairs.

Please help us in our efforts to preserve this facility for future generations by contributing to our fundraising efforts in any way possible. This may be by honoring a loved-one on our Tree of Life or by a monetary contribution to the Society.

Other major fundraising efforts will be announced.

Thank you for your continued support!
