Preserving The Past To Inspire The Future For 50 Years
Our group was organized in 1971 and published the first Bulletin May 1972. The Bulletin is devoted to copies and abstracts of original source data relating to Northeast Tennessee and adjacent areas. The Association publishes the Bulletin semi-annually – April and October. In 2016 WAGS went to an all digital format and our Bulletin is available online for all members.

The Association meets the first Tuesday evening of each month at 6:30 p.m. (NOTE: at 7:00 via Zoom) in the Jones Meeting Center of Johnson City Public Library, 100 W. Millard St., Johnson City, TN. No meetings are held in January, February or December.
VISITORS are welcome to attend all meetings.
The next meeting will be June 11, 2022
2- 4 p.m.
WAGS is partnering with Johnson City Public Library to host a summer roundtable on how to preserve, research, and share your genealogy and family stories as part of the library’s Share Your Story summer program. Inspired by the novel and movie Big Fish, this program encourages family historians, genealogists, and people of all ages to see more personal histories as real page-turners. WAGS will provide guidance and research to emerging genealogists at the library. We will also be sharing some of our discoveries and working through walls or problems.
