Foothills Genealogical Society Field Trip

Red Rocks Park, 300 Union Avenue, Morrison, Colorado

Mt. Morrison Civilian Conservation Corps Camp

This Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Camp has been designated as a National Historic Landmark. Open from 1935 through 1942, construction of the Red Rocks Amphitheater was one of the projects assigned to this camp.

Fourteen of 15 original buildings still exist, making it one of the most intact CCC Camps in existence. They offer visitors a glimpse of what life was like for the men who lived and worked there. The Recreation Hall houses a small Museum.

This camp is one of many established in Colorado by order of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933 to provide jobs and protect forests and lands during the Great Depression. Colorado was a prime place for camps because it had so much forest land. Originally called the Emergency Conservation Work (ECW) program, the name was changed in 1937 to Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC).

Follow a Park Ranger through the Museum and surrounding Buildings to learn about the history of this important camp. Meet at 9:15 a.m. to car pool from Applewood Valley United Methodist Church, 2035 Ellis St., Golden, or meet at the site entrance at 10:00 a.m. Guests are welcome.

Suggested donation: $5.00.

Register at the Foothills Genealogical Society 1:00 p.m. meeting on Wednesday, Sep. 13, at Applewood Valley UM Church or contact Pam Heath via email at moc.liamtoh|45htaehp#moc.liamtoh|45htaehp. For additional information and a map, visit the web site at http://www.foothillsgenealogy.org

Boulder Genealogical Society

Frasier Meadows Retirement Community
350 Ponca Place, Boulder
4th Floor Assembly Room

The October meeting of the Boulder Genealogical Society (BGS) will be held on Tuesday, October 3, 2017, at 7:30 PM.
"Overcoming a 30-Year Brick Wall: Some Stories and Tips" By Debbie Schwartz
She knew almost nothing about her ancestry outside of the U.S. until she started intensive family research in 2010.  Since then, she’s acquired evidence including ship records, census documents and stories going back to around 1800 for most of her eight great-grandparents, all who were born in Eastern Europe.  It IS possible to achieve your research goals, particularly as more worldwide information is now available online.

Ms. Schwartz licensed rights for a major publisher until last year. Tracking down rights holders uses some skills that genealogists value: researching online; trying things no else has tried or thought of; and persistence.

At 6:30, same date and place, Diane Barbour will discuss The Source a reference book for genealogy research.

Foothills Genealogical Society Meeting

Applewood Valley United Methodist Church, 2035 Ellis St., Golden 80401

Warning Out in New England

How can “warning out” notices help genealogists? Learn about the Colonial “warning out” process to control poverty in New England towns and its genealogy secrets from Janet Beiner, an NSDAR trained Volunteer Field Genealogist. Guests are always welcome. There is ample parking and handicap access.

What is “warning out”? To control homelessness, vagrancy, and poverty, New England towns relied heavily on the “warning out” system inherited from English law. The process focused on the eligibility of transients to receive poor relief from their most recent town of residence. Colonial towns usually denied residency for two reasons: potential for public dependency and religious differences. “Warning out” did not necessarily mean actual removal but rather a simple notification from the town to the transient that he was not eligible for poor relief.
