I dug out an old (I'm talking about high school in the 50's here) sheet music the other day, and it had a chord on it that I need help on. It has a symbol--but not a diagram--for an F#7+. The only augmented chords I know are augmented fifths. Does anyone know how an F#7+ chord would be fingered? Or is the chord symbol wrong?

I'd write it as F#+7 or F#aug7. The notes in the chord are the root, major 3rd, aug 5th, and a dominant 7th. So F#, A#, C## (D), and E. Nose to toes on a C6 (gCEA) uke 3425 will work nicely and is moveable up and down the neck. See the following site for other ways to make the chord http://chordlist.brian-amberg.de/en/ukulele/standard/Gb7aug/ra.html

In an augmented triad, all the notes in the chord are major 3rds from each other. So each chord is really 3 different chords. In this regard, nose to toes 4 different shapes make up all the augmented chords.

1003-is either Caug, or Eaug, or Abaug (G#aug)
2110-is either C#aug (Dbaug) or Faug or Aaug
3221- is either Daug or F#aug (Gbaug) or Bbaug (A#aug)
0332-is either Ebaug (D#aug) or Gaug or Baug

But what if the intervals are minor 3rds instead of major 3rds? Well then we'd have diminished chords which are displayed with a dim following the root (Cdim) or with a small circle after the root (C). A dim7 (often just labeled as a dim chord) is root to minor 3rd to flat 5th to flat flat 7. The notes are minor 3rds from each other.

On a standard tuned uke 0101 or 1212 or 2323 will make every dim7 chord

0101 is either Gdim7 or C#dim7 (Dbdim7) or Edim7 or Bbdim7 (A#dim7)
1212 is either Abdim7 (G#dim7) or Ddim7 or Fdim7 or Bdim7
2323 is either Adim7 or Ebdim7 (D#dim7) or F#dim7 (Gbdim7) or Cdim7

Thanks, that's great information. On my baritone it looks like the chord would be 2332. I appreciate your input.

If you want the root on the bottom, assuming you tune with a low 4th string (DGBE), 4330 imight be the way to go. This way you have the F# as the bass note.
