Have you ever been curious about your great grandparents and their place of origin? Or maybe you’ve been wondering about the validity of a story that has been passed down through the family? Or an adoption or an uncle that left and no one ever heard from again?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, now may be the time to reach out to the Longmont Genealogical Society for help.
The Longmont Genealogical Society (LGS) offers monthly “outreach” programs for anyone who wants to learn how to start searching for their ancestors. The LGS is also a great resource for those who have specific questions about their current research or are seeking new ideas to get past those inevitable ‘brick walls’.
Consider registering for the free monthly Collaborative Research and Learning Workshop, held via Zoom the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 1:30 to 3:30PM.
In addition to the workshops, LGS provides a “Library Help Session” at 10:00 AM on the last Saturday of each month in which interested parties can get help with their genealogy research or questions. The sessions are also held via Zoom, though the hope is to resume in-person meetings at the Longmont Public Library this fall!
A non-profit organization, LGS was chartered in 1986 and is a member of the National Genealogical Society and the Colorado Council of Genealogical Societies. They offer an open invitation to anyone who would like to join them at their monthly membership meetings held on the second Wednesday of each month at 1:00PM. Meetings feature a guest speaker, who presents a program on a variety of genealogical topics. While these meetings are also currently held via Zoom, they will soon resume their regular in-person format at the First Lutheran Church, 803 3rd Street, Longmont.

The LGS has members with a variety of interests and knowledge in different areas of genealogy including DNA results, Ancestry.com, European research, immigration, the FamilySearch website, and many other areas. Membership advantages include the Longmont Heritage, their quarterly newsletter that is full of articles to enrich your knowledge, access to the LGS Genealogy Library, the fellowship of other energetic researchers, plus a lot more!
