Meet With Us

One of the best things about AFHS is the people who are in it. If you have a problem, there is almost always somebody who can shed some light on how to solve it. Going to the meetings is how you can get this kind of help. Plus, the fellowship is so important. These are a bunch of people who don’t roll their eyes when you start talking about family history!
