About AlaBenton:

AlaBenton Genealogical Society, organized in 1976, meets monthly (except for June, July, and August) on the second floor of the Anniston-Calhoun County Public Library. The library is located on the corner of Wilmer Avenue and Tenth Street in Anniston, and parking is available at the rear, off Wilmer Avenue. If the first Saturday falls on a holiday weekend, the meeting takes place on the following Saturday. Meeting dates and scheduled programs are shown on the Meetings page of this website.


Regular monthly meetings feature a brief business meeting, a speaker, followed by member-furnished refreshments during a fellowship hour.

Officers and Committees

Our December meeting is devoted to the presentation of Nominating Committee recommendations and the annual election of officers for the coming year. Once the gavel is passed to the new president, giving the new officers the rest of the month to organize the new administration and appoint chairpersons for the various committees so they can be reported to the membership at the January meeting.


Once our website is fully functional, prospective new members will be able to print out a blank membership form to complete and either bring to a meeting or mail to: AlaBenton Genealogical Society Treasurer, P. O. Box 308, Anniston, AL 36202, along with a check for $15, which covers a member and spouse, or a member and one additional adult living in the same household. For a new member joining after October 1, this covers the balance of that year, plus the following year. For renewing members, dues are due in January of each renewal year and they cover only that year.

All AlaBenton funds in excess of our modest expenses are donated to the Alabama Room at the Annual Meeting in December, as well as all donations of resource materials, office supplies and checks placed under the tree for this purpose. Any funds raised from special projects during the year is included in this annual contribution.

Thanks for stopping by!
