"Some family trees have beautiful leaves and some have just a bunch of nuts;
Remeber, it is the nuts that make a tree worth shaking."

The Saint Augustine Genealogical Society was founded in 1989. We will be celebrating our 25th Anniversary this year! We meet monthly on the second Saturday at 1 p.m. at the South East Branch of the St. Johns County Library unless otherwise noted. We encourage anybody interested in genealogy to attend and all events are open to the public. Winter visitors to the Oldest City are welcome to participate.
We strive to assure this website contains useful resource information to anyone doing genealogy searches and the source information found here is not limited to the oldest city and the St. Johns County area. Be mindful most residents are not native to our area, so you may discover a reference to that long lost missing cousin.
Visit our growing Genealogy Library located at the Southeast Branch of the St. Johns County Public Library. A listing of our genealogy books is under 'Local Research' tab above, along with the library address and hours. Click here for a Virtual Tour courtesy of Larry Rauch.
Obituaries We have obituaries that were published in the St. Augustine Record from 2008 to the present day. There are also older obituaries contributed by SAGS members. All are listed alphabetically for your ease in use. They could be a treasure for the names of family members you may be seeking.
Cemeteries Under 'Cemeteries', most of the St. Johns County cemeteries have been transcribed and put online, along with others in the surrounding area. The burial information, along with gravesite and some cemetery photos are posted here, so take special note. Under the 'Records' tab, there are links to St. Johns County records where there are transcriptions of many church records. In addition there are court, vital and other miscellaneous records.
