About PCGS
The Pima County Genealogy Society, located in Tucson, Arizona, was established in July 2011. We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to helping you discover more about your heritage. Our mission is to:
  • Promote genealogy and family history research
  • Help our members learn about genealogy and how to apply that knowledge to uncover their personal family history
  • Collect, preserve and disseminate genealogical, biographical, and historical knowledge and information
  • Encourage the affiliation of people interested in the pursuit of their ancestral heritage
  • Host and participate in meetings, seminars, and events to raise public interest in genealogy and in the Pima County Genealogy Society
Our Meetings
PCGS meets the 3rd Saturday of every month (except July and December) from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM in the Truly Nolen Leadership Training Center, 436 S. Williams Blvd., Tucson, AZ. Parking is free.
The first half of our meeting includes a program on a genealogy topic of general interest, followed by a featured guest speaker educational program. Check the Calendar section of our website for information on upcoming programs and guest speakers.
