Welcome to FHSA
The Family History Society of Arizona (FHSA) was established to promote the study and worldwide research of member's family histories by instructing each member in the ethical principles and effective techniques of genealogical research, and to assist them in their preservation and dissemination of such research.
You are invited to investigate our Website, and join our membership, after which an informative and interesting FHSA Newsletter will be yours each month. Sharing your genealogy discoveries with your fellow FHSA members, and enjoying their camaraderie and expertise may all contribute to pleasurable genealogy experiences and research. Receiving a reduced rate to our annual Seminar and access to all of the Society meetings will be another reward for you. Come and join us!.
The Family History Society of Arizona meets monthly, with guest speakers and varying genealogy topics each month. Our members research their ancestors from within the United States of America and from foreign countries. On this page you may explore the topics and/or speakers you require for meeting your genealogical needs. We issue an open invitation to guests and members to attend any Society meetings they choose.

Looking for Information?
Do you have a favorite speaker, a topic you are really interested in, or something that just piques your curiosity?
If so, please contact our Programs Chair and let her know. She will do her best to line up a presenter that can scratch that itch.
