Gena, I saw where you did a presentation for Legacy on Arizona research. I haven't watched the presentation but I wanted to let you know about the largest genealogical library in Arizona - The West Valley Genealogical Society in Youngtown, AZ. We acquired over 1,000 items from the collection that was disposed of by the state when they dismantled the Arizona State Genealogical library. Part of that collection included 27 books of obituaries which we are in the process of cataloging and digitizing. Our website is www.azwvgs.org. We currently have over 500 active members; I am the membership registrar. Let me know if I can share any other information!
