Genealogy Club is where you can learn about resources for digging into your family’s history. It’s a great place to share what you’ve unearthed about your heritage and to connect with other genealogists. We celebrate the discovery of those obscure facts about the rascals, the rebels, and the revered in your past. We cheer each other on and listen with awe to the stories our members uncover. We hope you’ll join us.
About the Club
Our regular meetings are the last Thursday of the month from 9:30 – 11:00 am in the Bud Werner Memorial Library Conference Room. Our regular meetings may be pre-empted by special events so check our home page each month for up-to-date information.
History of the Genealogy Club
The Bud Werner Memorial Library Genealogy Club began in April, 2010 with about 15 community members attending meetings hosted at the Library. Today, the club is made up of more than 80 members. Since 2010, the club has evolved into a community of people who share: genealogy resources, research breakthroughs, and family history stories. In addition to teaching people how to use the genealogy databases, websites and books provided by Bud Werner Memorial Library, the club has organized events to support club members in their family history research with presentations by expert genealogists including:
- Pat Roberts of the Boulder Genealogical Society
- Buzzy Jackson author of Shaking the Family Tree: Blue Blood, Black Sheep, and Other Obsessions of an Accidental Genealogist
- Joyce Beckett, Colorado Northwest Community College Instructor
- Carol Cooke Darrow, nationally certified genealogist
