The Pikes Peak Genealogical Society meets on the second Wednesday of each month in The Venue, Library 21c. Guests are welcome. For more information, call PPLD, 531-6333 ext. 2252.
Of primary interest to genealogists are service records and pension records. Many records are available through the National Archives.
