After 66 years in Provo, Stevenson’s Genealogy and Copy Center closes Saturday

When J. Grant Stevenson completed his Master’s thesis, he took it to a Provo printer to get it priced out. When he got the bid he said he could buy a printer and do it himself for less money — so he did.

That was 66 years ago. Stevenson started his business with one printer in the basement of his home and it grew there for 10 years until it was moved to its current home on Cougar Boulevard.

It was Stevenson’s Genealogical Center in the early years, but changed over time to Stevenson’s Genealogy & Copy Center. The business is now run by the founder’s son, Chris Stevenson.

Stevenson’s Genealogy and Copy Center will close its doors for the final time on Saturday. While no one bought the business itself, the building has been sold and Chris has until March 31 to vacate the building. He officially retires April 1.
