The Avery Advocate was a meeting place for the genealogical exchange of all Avery branches and their families. The purpose of The Avery Advocate was to help trace all Avery Family roots, collect information and present it in readable form. We also printed feature stories of interest to Avery Family members. The Avery Advocate was a 12 to 14 page newsletter printed quarterly (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter) from Summer 1992 to Spring 2000. All back issues are now available!
