Summary

Established in 1894 as a nonprofit organization funded by The Church of Jesus Christ of  Latter-day Saints, the Genealogical Society of Utah has grown from 13 members to  an  international organization of over 700 highly skilled and dedicated individuals, with headquarters located in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

Today, more than 100 years later, the society's activities span the globe. Staff members have expertise in history, area studies, library science, micrographics, digital imaging, business management and a multitude of languages, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints supports the development of many unique resources to encourage its members and researchers around the world to search their family roots.

No single group can preserve, organize, and make available all the information contained in the world's important genealogical documents. This immense task requires the cooperation of record keepers and researchers around the world. In the spirit of cooperation, the Genealogical Society of Utah is committed to working with others to help preserve genealogical records and promote family research.
