What we're about

The African American Genealogy Group (AAGG), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, was founded in January 1989 in response to the ever-increasing number of people who express a desire to research their family “roots.”

AAGG is dedicated to the encouragement of and support for genealogy research and serves the African American community of Philadelphia and the Tri-State area. Our membership has steadily grown with the addition of both novice and advanced researchers.

Mission - The African American Genealogy Group’s mission is to educate, provide resources, and create a community for anyone interested in African American family history and genealogical research. We serve those who are interested in researching locally, regionally, and nationally.

Vision - We envision a world where people who are interested in researching African American family history can find the information and resources to meet their goals.

This meetup group was established to publicize the existence of AAGG, and to communicate events that are free and open to the public. To join AAGG (https://aagg.org/join/), or to register for a free event, visit the website.
