Austin Families Association of America

Welcome to the AFAOA Website!

The Austin Families Association of America is the premiere organization researching Austins (including all variant spellings) who immigrated to America. We were founded in 1942 by Edith Austin Moore and her brother Henry Warner Austin to bring Austin researchers together.
We welcome contributions from anyone who is researching Austins, and we offer our members the assistance of our expert genealogists. 
We make our data freely available for non-profit use by all Austin researchers.
