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.

It is time to pay membership dues for 2020!

Annual membership dues are still just $20 (individual or household) and were due 1 January 2020. Your dues are the primary method we have for funding our genealogical society.

Please also consider contributing to one or both of our donation funds, the BGS General Operating Fund and the Birdie Monk Holsclaw Memorial Fund.

Options for paying: 1) Pay on-line; 2) complete a 2019 membership form and bring it with your payment to a Tuesday program meeting; or, 3) complete the membership form and mail it and your check to the address on the form.

We normally meet in the 4th floor Assembly Room at Frasier, 350 Ponca Place, Boulder, and we look forward to meeting in person when this is again possible. 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.
