Grace M. Austin Award

The Albemarle Genealogical Society is the recipient of the 2016 Grace M. Austin Endowment Award. The award was presented at a recent meeting of the Currituck County Public Library Board of Trustees at the main library in Barco.

The Albemarle Genealogical Society (AGS) was founded in January 1982 to aid individuals in their genealogical research and in the complilation of their family histories. The society, serving primarily Currituck and Dare counties, attempts to create an interest in genealogy, to gather and preserve genealogical and historical data, and to provide genealogical resource information to any interested individuals.

The Grace Austin Award was established in 1999 and is given annually to a person or organization who provides special service to the Currituck County Public Library. AGS provided funding to the library for genealogical projects and equipment and holds quarterly meetings and genealogy-related presentations and workshops at the library in Barco. Accepting the award on behalf of AGS was charter member Lois Johnson Meekins with other AGS members and officers also present during the award ceremony.
