Adams County Genealogical Society
The Adams County Genealogical Society was organized in January 2013 to promote and meet the needs of genealogy research in the Thornton, Adams County, Colorado area - and beyond! We are open to anyone interested in Genealogy. We have found that all of our members - beginners to experts - share ideas and often try each others methods. Meetings are warm and friendly. We feature a monthly educational (speaker) program. A society newsletter is published quarterly to keep members up-to-date.
Genealogy is the Key!
- To bring together persons who are conducting genealogical research and promote fellowship and cooperation among them.
- To promote and encourage an interest in genealogy as an aid to discover a person's origins.
- To educate members and the interested public in methods of genealogical research.
- To maintain and elevate genealogical standards of research, preservation and dissemination.
- To stress the importance of accuracy in research through careful documentation of researched materials.
- To locate, preserve, publish and index public and private genealogical and historical records.
- To assist and support any genealogical institutions or repositories in Colorado which are open to the public.
