The Boulder Genealogical Society is here to help you with your family history no matter where you are researching. We also contribute to the greater genealogical community through local history research.

Society meetings are free and open to the public
on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm
at Frasier
350 Ponca Place, Boulder

We meet in the 4th floor Assembly Room. To reach this room, enter through the Ponca Place lobby and sign in at the table. Take the elevator at the back of the lobby up to the 4th floor. Upon exiting the elevator, turn left (south). The Assembly Room will be on your left.

Note: Frasier is in the midst of a major building project and your usual parking place may not be available. Plan to arrive early to find a spot. Consider carpooling.

Female Surnames, presented by Karlene Ferguson, CG @ Meadows Branch Library
Nov 14 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Our female ancestors had little legal standing in the community and, once they married, their individual identity was all but lost. If you are trying to identify a married woman who lived prior to the 1850 census, you do not even have a first name to start with. Finding a maiden name is almost always essential to further research on a particular ancestral line. This class will suggest methods for identifying maiden names and parents of our female ancestors. Specific record groups will be discussed.

Karlene H. Ferguson is a certified genealogist. She is a member of the Boulder Genealogical Society and has held several positions on the board of directors. She did not start doing family research until she retired and every relative she needed to talk with was gone. Not only does Karlene enjoy doing research, she also enjoys writing the stories of her ancestors.
