UCGS is a 501(c)3 non-profit and contributions are tax deductible.  Contributions are used to purchase genealogy materials housed at the Matilda Gibson Public Library in Creston, provide additional offerings on our website and assist in providing quality educational genealogy programs.  UCGS is a member of the Iowa Genealogical Society.
