Who We Are
The Austin Families Association, forerunner of the Austin Families Association of America (AFAOA), was founded by siblings Edith Austin Moore and Henry Warner Austin in 1942 in Washington, DC at a family reunion. AFAOA is a private, non-commercial genealogy organization whose mission is to research and preserve genealogical data relating to all Austin family lines who came to America, and to make that information freely available to interested researchers.
According to our bylaws, our Objectives are:
- To gather, preserve and disseminate Austin genealogies and Austin family histories.
- To establish a specialized database of Austin information that can assist genealogists and family members of the Austin families.
- To help foster wider acquaintances and long-term friendships among the members of all branches of the Austin families.
Operating Year: January - December 2024
We don't have monthly meetings. Instead, we gather for an annual conference at different cities around North America.
