Mesa County Genealogical Society

About Us

The Mesa County Genealogical Society was founded in March 1980 as a 501C(3) nonprofit organization to promote an interest in genealogy, and to encourage and instruct members in the art and practice of genealogical research.

We welcome family history researchers interested in all states and countries. Our members have wide ranging interests and engage in research in areas such as: Colorado, Wisconsin, New Mexico, Minnesota, Arkansas, Wyoming, New England, Ireland, Austria, Germany, Canada, etc. Come join us and learn new research techniques, brush up on techniques you learned in the past, and enjoy the fellowship of individuals who share your passion for family history research.
