The Pikes Peak Genealogical Society (PPGS), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was founded in 1980 with 140 charter members.
The society is administered by an executive board of elected officers and volunteers who serve two-year terms.
The society's principal objectives are to:
- Promote an interest in genealogy
- Encourage and instruct members in genealogical research
- Locate, preserve, and index public and private genealogical records
- Support genealogical facilities open to the public
The society supports the Pikes Peak Library District’s Special Collections by sponsoring the following programs:
- Volunteers extract data from newspapers and other key local resources to provide valuable genealogical indexes and databases in Special Collections and on the library’s website.
- The Book Committee selects and purchases books for the Special Collections.
- In cooperation with Special Collections, the Education Committee increases the public’s knowledge of genealogy by presenting programs to individuals and groups in the local community.
- GenMentors offer free genealogical consultations upon request. It's recommended that genealogists get the basics of genealogy by attending the series of free workshops offered three times per year.
