Books, Books, Books!


Bring your book bag!

Date: 19 November 2022, PCGS November Monthly Meeting

Starting around 12:15 p.m. before the 1:00 p.m. meeting

Location: Truly Nolen Leadership Center 


We have a special opportunity at the November 19th PCGS Monthly Meeting. The Tucson Family History Center on Langley Avenue has spent some time cleaning out their duplicate and no longer needed genealogy books. They have generously offered to let our members have a look and see what books they might like to adopt. The books are almost all genealogy and family history related with just a few general history or other topics. 


The books will be available for you to peruse at the PCGS Monthly Meeting on 19 November 2022 before our meeting at the Truly Nolen Leadership Center.  Richard Gomez, the director of the Family History Center, will be bringing the 12 boxes of books over to our meeting site around noon so you should be able to take your pick after 12:15 p.m.


The books will only be available on this date and time. You must be present to get books. As you know, PCGS does not have a physical location in which to store books and other materials so any remaining books will be donated. We are excited to have this wonderful benefit for our members!

What Does Our Logo Symbolize?

Our logo is based on the state flag of Arizona which “represents the copper star of Arizona rising from a blue field in the face of a setting sun” (quote from legislation). The 13 gold and red rays represent the sun setting over the western desert and the original 13 colonies. Red and gold colors were also carried by Coronado’s Spanish expedition in search of the Seven Cities of Cibola in 1540. The center star signifies copper production. Arizona produces more copper than any other state in the country and one of its nicknames is the Copper State. The field of blue is the same liberty blue as the United States flag. Blue and old gold are also Arizona’s official state colors. For more information about the state symbols of Arizona, visit the Arizona page of the State Symbols USA website.
