Curry County Genealogical Society

GOALS: of the Curry County Genealogical Society are to PREPARE, PUBLISH and to PRESERVE records of genealogical value.

MEETINGS: are held at 7pm in the Genealogy Room at the Clovis-Carver Public Library, 7th and Main Streets, Clovis, NM the first Monday of January through May and September through November with the September meeting on the 2nd Monday evening. No meetings are held in June, July, August, or December. Any interested person is invited.

HISTORY: In 1985 Tom Humphrey, Head Librarian at Eastern New Mexico University Clovis 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 the Curry County 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 40 members.

WORKS: The society has successfully prepared, published and preserved indexes of marriages in Curry County, funeral home records of Curry County 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.
