The American Society of Genealogists, founded in 1940, is an independent honorary society of the leading published scholars in the field of American genealogy. The ASG is limited to fifty life-time members designated as Fellows, identified within the genealogical community by the post-nominal initials FASG. From its inception to the present, the ASG has served the discipline of genealogy by embodying and promoting the highest standards of genealogical scholarship. Foremost among the ASG’s ongoing activities is publication of The Genealogist, one of the leading American journals of scholarly genealogy.

Our website presents information about the Society, including its Fellows, history and activities, as well as information for subscribers and contributors to The Genealogist.
