12 - 15 October 2022 AAHGS 2022 Annual Conference Virtual
Details:

AAHGS is celebrating its 45th Anniversary focusing on the history and genealogy of ethnic groups with a special emphasis on African Americans. With its award winning publications, AAHGS Journal and Newsletter, AAHGS has made significant contributions to the community and has hosted its annual conference for 43 years!  We are celebrating this years' Sapphire anniversary with the theme "Bridging the American Colonial Divide:  Resurrecting the Memory and Space of Black Patriots and History Makers".    Afro-Americans have made historic contributions and achievements well over the past 400 years.  There were Americans of African descent who fought during the Revolutionary War ultimately continuing their struggle for freedom and independence. History-makers founded churches, launched rebellions, and continued their fight for social injustice! 

We celebrate the colonial research and the lives of not only Afro-Americans in the Revolutionary War but also the lives of Afro-American history makers!

 

12 - 12 October 2022 FhGS Meeting: The Boulder Pioneer Project: Lessons in Community-Wide Genealogical Research Golden, Colorado
Details:

Genealogist Dina Carson will present “The Boulder Pioneer Project: Lessons in Community-Wide Genealogical Research”. An author and local historian, she will discuss how this research helped reveal the story of Boulder's pioneers, trappers, traders, Native Americans, gold seekers and others.

The Boulder Pioneers Project has been an on-going look at the original source materials for Boulder County to discover the people who arrived before statehood in 1876. Many interesting and surprising stories have come to light as a result of the research. A community-wide project may reveal much more about ancestors than looking at individual record groups.

Dina is the coordinator for Boulder Pioneers Project, a comprehensive look at the original source documents for Boulder County during the Territorial period (1859-1876). She is the author of more than 100 annotated indexes of Boulder County source materials and is working with the Colorado State Archives on state-wide indexing projects.

Guests are welcome at this free ZOOM presentation which begins at 1:00 p.m. MT on Wednesday, Oct. 12. Register at http://www.foothillsgenealogy.org for the ZOOM link.

For 42 years, Foothills Genealogical Society has been supporting genealogical research with educational programs, classes and field trips as well as preserving and publishing historical records from Clear Creek, Gilpin, Jefferson and Park counties.
