Foothills Genealogical Society
The Foothills Genealogical Society of Colorado, Inc. has been publishing original records for Gilpin, Clear Creek, Jefferson and Park counties, both as stand-alone publications and in its quarterly publication, the Inquirer, since its organization in 1980. Some material we have published does not exist elsewhere. Our Colorado Genealogical Chronicles Series is up to volume XXXII; our Colorado Collections Series up to volume XI. Additionally, we have indexed 36 publications for which no indexes previously existed.

Foothills has a "Genealogist" on its Executive Board, whose responsibility it is to respond to queries regarding family history research in the 4-county area we serve. A small fee of $10.00 is charged to cover the cost of copying and postage. (These fees go as donations to the library fund for the Jefferson County Public Library and are tax deductible.)

Foothills Genealogical Society may be reached at P. O. Box 150382, Lakewood CO 80215-0382. (Web page: http://www.foothillsgenealogy.org.) We maintain an office in the Jefferson County Public Library (Lakewood Public Library) at 20th and Miller Streets in Lakewood and are wholly responsible for the genealogy collection shelved in that library - books, periodicals, microfilm/microfiche, and CD-rom, with associated software. Phone number (303) 232-1483 ext: 2306, e-mail address foothills@jefferson.lib.co.us.
