Green Valley Genealigical Society

Our Mission

The Green Valley Genealogical Society, located in Southern Arizona, began in late 1976. Our Society’s mission is to encourage and further genealogical research through educational programs, to exchange genealogical data among the members, and to cooperate with regional, national, and individual societies with a like purpose. We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

The Society’s operating/membership year is from October 1 to September 30 to conform to the period of “membership meetings” from October through April. There are no membership meetings from May through September. 

Our Meetings

GVGS meets October through April, from 1:00-3:00PM on the 3rd Thurday of each month, at the Valley Presbyterian Church, 2800 S. Camino del Sol, Green Valley, AZ. Check the Calendar listing on our website for information on upcoming programs and guest speakers. For easy directions and a map of our meeting location that you can view and print, click HERE.
