A.B.G.S Middle School Genealogy Club
The A.B.G.S Middle School Genealogy Club was started in September 2000 by Ms. Edith McRae, Club Advisor. Mrs. McRae had been trying to get a Genealogy Club in existence for a few years, and finally, permission was given in September to start the club. The first person to join the club was Jason Williams, a 7th grader. Jason's enthusiasm was infectious. He went around the school recruiting other students to become members of the club. Jason is a very optimistic student and we would like to thank him for a job well done!
Our Club was named after Mrs. Alberta B. Gray Schultz (deceased). Mrs. Schultz was an African-American woman who had a love of knowledge and was proud of her African-American Heritage.
Our aim for our members is to attempt to create an interest in black family ancestry as well as other ethnic groups. We feel that Genealogy retrieves a large part of our history and ancestry, which has too frequently been overlooked, ignored and sometimes obliterated!
Our club would like to be a link to the history of our ancestry by helping the members to:
