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

We welcome all interested genealogists, whether you are just starting out or have years of experience or are a professional. Members support our monthly speakers and are invited to regular discussion groups and indexing projects. Join here!

It is time to pay membership dues for 2023!

Annual membership dues are still just $20 (individual or household) and were due 1 January 2023. Your dues are the primary method we have for funding our genealogical society.

Please also consider contributing to the BGS General Operating Fund.

Options for paying: 1) Pay on-line; 2) complete the membership form and mail it and your check to the address on the form.

Society meetings are free and open to the public on the first Tuesday of each month. Meeting time is at 7:00 pm currently by webinar. We will resume in-person meetings in April!

Please use the registration link with each month’s meeting description. Visitors are welcome! After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Our February meeting will be a real treat. We’ll be presenting:

“Creating a Family History of Lasting Value” – By Thomas W. Jones, PhD, CG, FASG, FUGA, FNGS

Dr. Jones is a leading expert in genealogy and a well known speaker and instructor for multiple genealogical conferences and institutes. Because this lecture is likely to be very popular, get your registration in as soon as you can. We won’t open registrations to guests until January 15th, but if you want to secure your slot (we only have 100), register now HERE.

While it is possible that there may be some same-day registrations available, don’t rely on it. Register. And if you can’t remember if you have already registered, no problem, register again. The system will recognize that you have already registered and not take an additional slot out of our allotment.

To see a description of the next meeting, see the calendar snapshots at the left.
