What we're about

The Castle Rock Colorado Genealogical Society is an association of men and women meeting locally, but researching globally, with a burning interest in the discovery of our ancestry. Collectively and individually we seek answers to family history questions. As a non-profit organization, the society functions through the support of volunteers who contribute their knowledge, time, and effort. The society strives to provide inspiration, support, and encouragement for our members, as we research our family history and share our discoveries as we exchange information among members.

We welcome anyone interested in genealogical research, from novice to advanced. Our many monthly programs are designed to meet the diverse needs of our membership. Our classes, programs and workshops are free, however we encourage everyone to consider becoming a member. And to assist our members in their genealogical research we offer the following:

Every Monday: SHARE from 10 AM until Noon
3rd Saturday of the Month: Speaker Programs from 10 AM until Noon
As Announced: round tables, workshops, classes, field trips

Finding Records to Document Your Farming Ancestors - presented by Lisa Gorrell
Up to about 1870, farming was the number one occupation. You probably have a large number of farmers in your family. There are many record sets that document our farming ancestors such as land, tax, and probate records. Newspapers and many agricultural records can add context to their story.

Lisa Gorrell, a Certified Genealogist, has researched her family for nearly thirty years. Besides U.S. Southern and Mid-western states, she researches German, Irish, English, and Swedish families. She actively volunteers with the Contra Costa Historical Society board, California Genealogical Society, and Sacramento German Gen. Society. She enjoys giving presentations and writing about family on her two blogs, "My Trails Into the Past" and "Mam-ma's (pronounced ma'am-ma) Southern Family."
