The third Saturday of every month is special for Dora Marrisette, president of The Birmingham African American Genealogy Group Inc. (BAAGG), and members of the organization.

“We are a group of people [who] are curious about our roots, where we came from, and our people,” Marrisette said. “We are trying to extend that out into the community, where we help other people who are interested in the same thing. We try to point them to the right direction like the library, the archives in Montgomery, [and] the different archives at the historically Black colleges.”

BAAGG holds classes at the Birmingham Public Library, 2100 Park Place, Linn-Henley Building, 4th Floor, Computer Room, from 3-5 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month. It was founded in 1999 and is the oldest such organization in Alabama.
