We encourage our members to learn the proper ways to document their discoveries and share them with others.  Founded in 2001, BGS serves Broomfield and the surrounding Boulder-Denver metropolitan area.

Meetings start at 6:00 p.m. (Mountain) for socializing, then a short business meeting at 6:30 p.m., followed by the program at 7:00 p.m. For 2023, meetings will be a combination of online, hybrid (online and in-person) and in-person only.

Special Interest & Focus groups

Join a special interest or focus groups to learn more about a genealogical topic of interest.

Our BGS Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Focus Groups are communities within our broader organization that serve to support our members that have a mutual interest in a specific genealogical area. They typically meet monthly depending on the interests of the members and the group’s facilitator.  These groups aim to advance knowledge in a specific field of genealogy in the group by:

  • Offering opportunities for discussion, questions, and sharing of information, skills and experiences among genealogists.
  • Having subject matter experts share their knowledge.

Volunteer Opportunities! We would love to form several more SIGs, but we need to recruit a leader or facilitator for each group.
