About Us

Welcome to the website for the African American Genealogical Society of Milwaukee (AAGSOM) Wisconsin. AAGSOM is a non-profit organization committed to the preservation of the history and culture of our African American Ancestors. 


AAGSOM stresses the importance of African American history and genealogy by encouraging research, recording, and documenting personal family histories, and to encourage the preservation of records within families and the community.


Our group had been meeting monthly, (except during July and August) every third Saturday from 1:30-3:30 P.M. The meetings were at the Villard Square Milwaukee Public Library located at 5190 N. 35th St., Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Due to COVID, our meetings are currently virtual education sessions.


This is an opportunity to hear occasional speakers, members share interesting stories, learn helpful hints on research techniques and share ideas. The meeting is open to the public. Go to Events for additional meeting information.


We hope you will come back to visit this site often, as we plan to update it with up-coming events, and new discoveries in genealogical research.
