Preserving our past . . . for our future

Welcome to the Cheyenne Genealogical &
Historical Society's Web Site

The Society's mission is to stimulate and encourage family history research through a variety of endeavors and to provide members and the genealogical public with a diversity of resources.

We hope you will enjoy your visit here and leave with some new knowledge about us and your genealogy search.

While you browse through the site you will find the Requests section helpful if you need help from our volunteers or officers.




Join the Cheyenne Genealogical & Historical Society at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 8 in the

Sunflower Room of the Laramie County Library for a glimpse into federal records that might

hold clues to your own family history.

William H. Carver, archives technician in Research Services & Archival Operations with the National

Archives and Records Administration in Denver, will provide an overview of such Federal records

as land and homestead records, census and naturalization documents, depression-era work

program records, military personnel records, and other documents created and

retained by the federal government. He will explain how to search for family members who

may be listed in federal records, how to request copies of those records, and he will

talk about NARA’s partnership with Ancestry.com, including some of the more intricate

search functions associated with that site. 

Carver, who has a Masters’ degree in history, has worked as an archives technician at NARA

Denver for the past four years managing a number of digitization projects, including the

digitization of Lowry Air Field and U.S. Air Force Academy records. Before coming to

Denver, he worked as a student historian for the National Park Service after serving in the U.S. Air Force.

Registration is not necessary for this free evening program, which is open to the public.

The meeting of the society begins at 6:15 p.m. with a short business meeting with the program

starting at 7:00 p.m. For more information, call 630-0924.
