Pikes Peak Genealogical Society

Pikes Peak Genealogical Society located in Colorado Springs CO

The Pikes Peak Genealogical Society (PPGS) is a nonprofit organization that 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.

PPGS is a member of the Colorado Council of Genealogical Societies and the National Genealogical Society.

PPGS meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. Currently it is meeting via Zoom. When the library is open again for meetings, it meets at The Venue, Library 21c. See for more information. Visitors are welcome.
