December 8 JGSCO Program: “Fabulous Family Histories”

Dina Carson, past president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado (JGSCO), will present “Fabulous Family Histories – Planning a Doable Project with an Introduction to Genealogical Publishing” on Sunday, December 8.

The lecture starts at 10:00 A.M. Come at 9:30 A.M. to network with other genealogists or to receive advice from our genealogy mentors. 

Dina C. Carson

Dina C. Carson has been involved in genealogy for more than two decades, and is currently the coordinator of the Boulder Pioneers Project, a comprehensive look at the original source documents for Boulder County during the Territorial period (1859-1876). She is the author of more than thirty annotated indexes of Boulder County source materials. She has been the editor of the Boulder Genealogical Society Quarterly (BGSQ) for the past 10 years. She lectures frequently to genealogical societies throughout the state and is working with the Colorado State Archives on state-wide indexing projects. Although her formal education is in International Law and Economics, she owns Iron Gate Publishing, a publishing company. Dina is the author of 10 books about publishing and genealogy. In early 2018, Dina was the coordinator and primary instructor for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy’s course, Writing and Publishing Family Histories in the Digital Age. Dina brings her experience with all phases of book publishing to help first-time self-publishers create quality family or local histories that are both believable and achievable. When she’s not at a computer working on a publishing project, you can find her photographing the pioneer cemeteries of Colorado.

The meeting will be at BMH-BJ Congregation 560 S. Monaco Parkway, Denver. Enter at the east side entrance.

You may bring in your own coffee, and we will provide some kosher snacks. Please do not bring in any non-kosher food. 

Admission is free for JGSCO members. Non-member admission is $10.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
