“Thousands of New Civil War Records — Is Your Ancestor in Them?” by Diane Barbour, PLCGS @ Frasier Meadows Retirement Community - 4th Floor Assembly Room
Sep 4 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The United States Sanitary Commission, a little-known volunteer organization, provided care and many services for Union soldiers during the Civil War. No, it’s not about sewers. In the process, they created thousands of records rich in genealogical information. Come and hear this amazing story of their work. Find out how to obtain the records.

Diane Barbour has been doing genealogy for about 20 years. In June 2012, she graduated from the National Institute of Genealogical Studies at the University of Toronto to earn her educational qualification of PLCGS or Professional Leaning Certificate in Genealogical Studies. She attends advanced institutes yearly and has taught genealogy locally and nationally. Her first love is teaching. She is past president of Broomfield Genealogical Society and has volunteered for many jobs with other organizations. She also volunteers at the Denver Public Library and National Archives in Broomfield.
