Utah Genealogical Association Mission Statement
The Utah Genealogical Association provides genealogical information, sources and education through personal instruction and published media on state, national and international family history topics, while promoting high standards and ethical practices.

The Utah Genealogical Association is interested in worldwide genealogical research methodology, sponsoring week-long courses annually at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG). Pioneer certificates are issued to anyone proving pioneer heritage in Utah.
