WELCOME to Mesa County, Colorado.  My name is Betty, and I'm your county coordinator.  This web site was created to help you with your genealogy research.  I hope you find many pleasant surprises as you browse the pages. 

I will be adding new information on a regular basis, so be sure to check back often.  If you have any old letters, documents, yearbooks or even old photos, I would be thrilled to publish them here.  If you would like to volunteer to do look-ups or transcribe information, please let me know.  I don't live in the area, so won't be able to do research for you.  I have a personal interest in the area, as my great-grandparents came to this area in 1885.
