All of our original Yuma County ancestors came from somewhere else. Many of them and their children stayed in the county but many others thought the grass would be greener and the rain or jobs surer somewhere else. This page is set up as part of a "grass-roots" effort to track those migrations from one county to another.

Yuma County Migrations Project:
Immigrations [Latin - immigrãre, to enter and settle.]
Emigrations [Latin - èmigrãre, to move away from.]
