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 Family History Library in Salt Lake City. For those wishing to see what records they have, please visit
