Broomfield Genealogy Society

PURPOSE
Our mission is to promote interest in genealogy, supporting our members and the interested public through education and genealogical research. We encourage genealogical research through careful documentation and the maintenance of quality genealogical standards, to locate and preserve public and private genealogical records with a particular interest in those resources located in Broomfield and to help make those records available to the public.

For a history of the organization, please go to the History and “Tracing a Family Tree” pages where Paul Williams, an honorary lifetime member, provides information on the early days of the genealogy cub/society.
