The Larimer County Genealogical Society is pleased that you have joined our society. You will find many benefits as listed in our Membership page or our Membership Directory.
Visitor’s Note: Due to the coronavirus crisis, all of our meetings are online using Zoom through the end of 2020. Please see our homepage or events webpage to register for our meetings, classes, one on one help, or study groups.
Hybrid (in person & Zoom) meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm except December at the Fort Collins Senior Center located at 1200 Raintree Drive. Closest intersections are So. Shields at Raintree Drive. See map below. The January meeting includes the annual business meeting when officers are elected. Visit our home page or Events webpage for our monthly programs!
Transportation is available to take you to the meetings. If you want to attend our monthly meetings, but do not have a means of transportation, don’t want to drive at night, or would just like some company to go with, we have a group of volunteers ready to provide transportation. If you should need a ride, please contact Vice President Kathy Patrick at 970-206-1664 and she will arrange for someone to pick you up. 48 hours notice would be appreciated.
Society events and classes are listed monthly in the newsletter and on the website calendar. We host quite a few classes and workshops on genealogical topics like: Intro to Genealogy, Genealogy On the Internet and much more. In addition, all general meetings except the annual business meeting, have speakers who lecture on a broad range of genealogical topics. The calendar also shows programs sponsored by other organizations such as genealogy conferences in the area. We strive to keep our members informed of anything that might be interest to genealogists. Members also download our Annual 2022 Class & Program Schedule.
The membership term is January 1 to December 31 so your membership will come up for renewal at the beginning of the year, regardless of when you joined. Renewal applications will be available online at the bottom of this webpage and at the general meetings.
Our Membership Directory is published in April. The directory includes a history of the Society, names and biographies of the Board Members, a list of Committees, photographs and contact information for each member plus our many classes and workshops.
There are many free and subscription genealogy databases available for new members to start researching their ancestors. Ancestry.com is the most popular subscription database, with over 1 billion records worldwide. Available at major libraries in Fort Collins and Loveland plus all FamilySearch Centers. Many of the subscription databases offer one to two week free trials and monthly or annual rates.
We are very proud to have several of the original twenty charter members still active with our society: They have been dedicated members of the Society since its inception over thirty-six years ago.
