The goal of this project is to ...input all families, maybe just the HEAD of the Household from the book, Colorado Families- A Territorial History" by The Colorado Genealogical Society, Inc Denver, Co. 1981

Right now this project just has 5 members,

  1. me. I am Carole Taylor.
  2. Larry Kenyon
  3. Dawn (Meyer) Cannon
  4. Robert Baumann
  5. Mary McCuen

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • make a profile for the Head of Household
  • add the book in sources
  • find/add f-a-g memorials
  • find/add newspaper items

The above lists does show how the book is put together, but since it is taking up a lot of SPACE/TIME I will not do ALL lines just "page:/ Family Names"
