Starting in June, our society will be meeting in person at the Fort Collins Senior Center for our monthly programs. We will have a hybrid meeting using our Zoom video service. Capacity is 45 persons in the Foxtail II room located at the northeast end of the senior center. Lots of free parking at the senior center close to the Foxtail room. We look forward to seeing you there!

Our program begins at 6:30 pm. Visitors (not LCGS members) who wish to attend via Zoom need to register below to receive the Zoom info and handout.

President Glenn York provides a brief overview of our society with the latest committee reports followed by tonight’s program.

Program Information: “Voting Records: Genealogy’s Best Kept Secret”.

Looking for a date of birth or death?  When and where your ancestor became a citizen?  Where he disappeared to or where he came from?  Voting records may have the answer.  These often-overlooked gems can be packed with genealogical information, and you won’t believe what they can tell us about our ancestors!

Speaker Profile:  

Pam Vestal is a professional genealogist and speaker who turned her focus to her longtime love of genealogy after a 20-year writing career. Her articles have appeared in the Association of Professional Genealogists Quarterly and the FGS’s Forum magazine, and her lectures take her from coast to coast.  Pam specializes in conducting genealogical research and then turning that information into illustrated stories that even non-genealogists can enjoy.
