A Little About Our Past

Betsy Gottsponer and a few others had a dream of creating a society of genealogists.  In 1981, the dream started with the Genealogical Society of Yuma, Arizona (GSYA).  In 1993, GSYA became an official non-profit organization set to help people reconnect with their ancestors.
