    The FhGS Society is sponsoring a tour of the Broomfield Veterans Museum April 23, 2024.

    This Museum honors local veterans of all the United States conflicts and peacekeeping efforts, from the Civil War to the present, from all branches of service. The museum not only shares the stories of Colorado veterans, it is a center for veterans to connect, students to learn about our nation’s history, groups to explore the rotating exhibits, and families to honor their loved ones who served in the military.

    This will be a group tour for our members and guests.  The tour will meet in the parking area at the Museum at 10:00.  Carpooling will be available at the Applewood Valley United Methodist Church Parking Lot, 2035 Ellis St, Golden, CO 80401 between 9:15-9:30.  Carpool drivers are needed.  

    A $5.00 tour fee is requested for this tour.  Click on FhGS Donations to submit a credit card tour fee or the $5.00 tour fee will be collected by Linda Hendon, Tour Organizer.

    Take A Trip to Salt Lake City

    Research Your Genealogy Records

    Sept 23 - Sept 28, 2024 Monday-Saturday

    Foothills Genealogical Society is planning a trip to Salt Lake City in 2024.  We are welcoming anyone who would like to join us to do research in the FamilySearch Library. 

    The FamilySearch Library of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is one of the largest genealogical libraries in the world. It is located in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, on the southwest side of Temple Square. The library is operated by FamilySearch, a nonprofit genealogical organization owned by the Church and dedicated to connecting families across generations. The library is free of charge and open to the public.

    You will need to make your own reservation at the hotel. Salt Lake City Plaza Hotel, 122 West S Temple Street, SLC, Utah 84101 Phone No. 801-606-2410.  Richard Williams is your contact person for making a reservation. Hotel Rates: $100.00 Per night small room/$110.00 Per night large room. Both based on Double occupancy and both rooms have 2 queen beds. Be sure to mention Foothills Genealogical Society, when reserving a room.

    Airline transportation will need to be done by the person planning on traveling to SLC.  There is an Airport Tram to take you to the hotel and it stops at the front entrance of the Plaza Hotel.  Right now, the attached restaurant is closed but might be open sometime next year. I will be putting together some suggestion about searching for family records in the SLC library.
