Welcome to SAGS!
It's all new . . . and it's all good!
 
Welcome to the Southern Arizona Genealogy Society. We start our renewed Society with the wisdom and traditions obtained from 43 years as the successful Green Valley Genealogical Society. Our new name, logo, and motto, express the excitement we want to share with all our southern Arizona neighbors about genealogy, family history, educational opportunities, and our award-winning genealogy library.
 
Discover Your Ancestors with the Southern Arizona Genealogy Society!
