Austin Families Genealogical Society (AFGS) was a sister Austin Genealogical
group devoted to providing and publishing Austin research. The group
dissolved following the untimely death of its founder Dr. Michael E. Austin
in late 2011. Mrs. Patricia Austin has given AFAOA permission to publish the Newsletters of the Society: Austins of America,
volumes 1, 2 & 3, and the Austin Families Genealogy Society Register,
volume 1, and the unfinished volume 2.
