Welcome to ACAGS
Audrain County Area Genealogy Society

Where you can cultivate your family tree

Sorry to inform everyone that the virus shut us down and then in November the library had a pressure valve fail on the furnace, causing flooding and damage to every floor.  We can not get to the books for research at this time.  If you have sent a request please be patient with us and we will get to them when we are able to get to the research materials.

We were lucky as we didn’t lose very much stuff and we dried some of the stuff.  But the room is so full of books, shelves, chairs we had to move to get it off the carpet to get it dried and see the damage.  We are waiting to see what will be done to the room and the small room outside our door.  We can’t even give you a date as they haven’t informed us yet.
