PCGS May 2022 Monthly Meeting is VIRTUAL

 
Every month our PCGS health advisor monitors the community COVID conditions to contribute to our decision process. In Pima County, the COVID transmission rate has taken a sharp increase over the past week or so.  Pima County is in RED for transmission along with a percent positivity rate over 10%. While the county is not yet experiencing high hospitalization rates, the transmission rate is the leading indicator.
The PCGS Steering Committee has agreed that for May for the protection of our genealogy community, the Monthly Meeting will be VIRTUAL. 
Thank you for your support as we navigate our way forward.  We are pleased to be able to continue with high quality meetings and hope to be hybrid again in the near future. Stay tuned!

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.
