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!
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).
Registration is now CLOSED. We have exceed the number of registrations by 20% to accommodate potential no-shows. Please join early just in case, we can only accept the first 100.
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.
