From the Quarterly

The Quarterly is a quality publication that we are proud of, published February, May, August, and November.

We have been sponsoring an annual "Writing Contest" for AGS members to enter their stories about research, family lore, breaking brick walls or other genealogy-related themes, with winning entries published in the Quarterly. The writing contest is suspended for now, but might return in the future if there is sufficient interest.

An important component is the "Early Albuquerque Series" about families that settled here at the turn of the century and before, what the times were like in the "olden days," and descriptions of the town when it was small.

The Quarterly features articles and tips on research and much more.  Members are encouraged to share brief items of interest or websites they find in their research in the "I discovered . . . Series".  All upcoming events are announced in the Quarterly.

A hard copy is available to members by mail, or they can choose the optional electronic version.

Computer Corner - On Line

Computer Corner has long been a regular column in the Quarterly.  Of particular interest to computer users will be this segment called Computer Corner - On Line. This web page provides the most recent columns, plus selected older columns.


The Quarterly has recently started a series of columns on using DNA for genealogical research.  This new segment is called  UPDATE – DNA FOR AGS. We provide the column content here as well.

Articles from the Quarterly newsletter will be shared with our online readers from time to time.
