AAFA History

This page will be used to help us document the history of AAFA and our overall Alford family history and genealogical effort.

Before AAFA, there was much important Alford genealogy and family history work done by others. To learn more about some of that see our page on Published Work of Others.

Initially the program will involve two sources that are used elsewhere.  They are the annual meeting reports that are found on the meetings page, but are also linked here; and the "Our History" articles being written for publication in the quarterly, AAFA ACTION.

There is no direct relationship between the two columns below
