I would also like to add that many genealogical societies that used to hold meetings and events at DPL are now hosting events on Zoom. (right now, none of the society events are on DPL's calendar). This includes The Colorado Genealogical Society, which offers many free classes. Beginning Genealogy, writing, as well as special events on many subjects. August 29, an event originally scheduled as "5th Saturday" at DPL, will now be held online. Two speakers on WWII-related topics: Ellen Kowick, professional genealogist, on Holocaust records and Keli Schmid, DPL, will be discussing the records available for the 10th Mountain division: See this link here to register:

Hi Kim! Thanks for this additional information. Yes, many of the local genealogy groups continue to meet virtually in this time. Folks with questions shouldn't hesitate to contact us to ask for more info.


Sorry to learn that James, our premier genealogist, is retiring from WH-DPL. He is a wealth of information and helpful with the many requests for assistance he received. Best wishes for the new chapter of your life.

Thank you for your comment, Stan! We will be sure to pass it along to James. Yes, his retirement is a loss and we will all miss him! We continue to build further genealogy credentials amongst our librarians, and our volunteers (many professional genealogists themselves) remain available for consultation.


Thank you, DPL for my employment 1974-1994, and continuing education with the Colorado Genealogical Society and W.I.S.E. Family History Society. My son and I moved to Frederick, Maryland in October 2020. Present pandemic restrictions prevent me from finding any group memberships here. I really miss the fellowship enjoyed in these groups. My sturdy health is blessing me over and over. Hugs to everyone at DPL. Reach me at

Hi Lydia, thank you for checking in to say hello. I'm sure the Colorado organizations would be happy to continue to see you in their virtual meetings, until you're able to find new groups out there!
