Augusta County Genealogical Society

Augusta County Library was excited to welcome the Genealogical Society as they moved into our main Fishersville Library in April of 2013. The ACGS Library is located in the mezzanine and is open for limited hours each week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. ACGS also offers additional availability by appointment. To speak with ACGS, call them directly at (540) 885-1991. During scheduled hours, one of their volunteers will answer; when the library is closed, leave the Society a message and they will return your call at their earliest convenience.

Since their founding, the Society has maintained a library of various literature that is useful in doing research. Included in this collection are periodicals, pamphlets, manuscripts, individual family records, and more:

  • Obituary books for selected years from 1935-2006 (project in progress)
  • Augusta County church histories
  • Cemetery listings
  • Various Augusta County marriage licenses starting in 1851
  • Family histories
  • Research files of Rev. Elswick
