HISTORY: In 1985 Tom Humphrey, Head Librarian at EasternNew MexicoUniversityClovis Campus, conducted a genealogy class
during the Spring semester. At the final class, an
announcement was made regarding the organization of a genealogical society in Clovis.
A meeting was called to see if there was sufficient support to establish such a
society. The response was excellent with 20 persons present for the meeting and
on May 13, 1985
Genealogical Society was organized. The first official meeting was held on June 3, 1985 with 31
present. The suggestion was put forth that Charter Members should be any person
who joined the Society by November 30, 1985. The Charter Member list included
WORKS: The society has successfully prepared,
published and preserved indexes of marriages in Curry County, funeral home
records of CurryCounty
and obituaries of the Clovis News Journal.
Programs are given at each meeting by members of the society and others that
are educational and informative on a broad range of genealogical topics.
