Welcome to UGA!

The Utah Genealogical Association (UGA) provides genealogical education and information for researchers at all levels, supporting members from across the nation.





The Utah Genealogical Association is not to be confused with the Genealogical Society of Utah, who microfilmed records and gathered them at the FamilySearch Library (formerly the Family History Library) in Salt Lake City. For those wishing to see what records they have, please visit FamilySearch.org.

Invitation to Join

If you are not yet a member of UGA, we invite you to join. There is considerable value associated with membership, which is offered at a reasonable annual rate with discounts given for multiple-year renewals. Life memberships are also available, as are membership gifts for friends and family. SaveSave
