West Valley Genealogical Society and Library had its beginning in 1972 in Sun City, Arizona. Since that year we have grown from 36 charter members to well over 700 members, and still growing, who share a common interest – researching the lives of ancestors, while archiving and preserving their legacy. The WVGS welcomes all those interested in pursuing family history – from the novice to the experienced researcher. Membership in the Society offers a wide variety of vehicles for education and collaborative research.

The crown jewel of WVGS is a non-circulating Library whose shelves hold thousands of books, hundreds of periodical titles, CDs and a one-of-a-kind map collection. A computer lab offers free access to multiple genealogical websites including Ancestry.com., Heritage Quest, World Vital Records, New England Genealogical & Historical Society. The facility is managed, maintained and staffed by our membership – all volunteers.

A wide variety of classes are available which offer opportunities to enhance your genealogy knowledge and research skills. Monthly meetings – September through May – feature speakers presenting topics of interest to family researchers.
