Summer Camp Needs – Help us with our first genealogy event!
Our Summer Camp – August 4-5, Denver Colorado
We will be hosting our first annual Genealogy Gangster Summer Camp, August 4-5 in Denver, Colorado. Our goal is to accommodate 6-15 teens who want to get a start on their genealogy. We will introduce them to family history and genealogy and help them research their family trees.
We Need Your Help!
This program is hopefully going to be provided to these teens at no cost as we desire to reach at-risk teens from the east Denver and montbello-green valley ranch neighborhoods. We hope to provide the teens with a T-Shirt to remember the experience and we also hope to provide snacks for the camp. We also need to purchase six to twelve laptops (older models but with current internet browsers and wifi access) for the teens to do the work on. So how can you help?
1.) You can make a secure donation online on PayPal at PayPal.me/downtowngreens any donation would be of help to us.
2.) If you have an old laptop laying around that you are not using we could use it, contact Kenneth at Ken at genealogygangster dot us or using the form below.
3.) Boost the signal! Please share this post on any websites and social media that you can. These kids could benefit from having a sense of identity for themselves. They have the ability to grow and be stronger members of the community because they will know what stock they come from. And we hope to inspire them to be interested in genealogy!
We hope you can help! Thank you for your time!
P.S. We are still looking for members for our Board of Directors if you are interested in being a member please contact our executive director Kenneth at the email above or the contact sheet below!

FIRST CLASS ANNOUNCEMENT
Genealogy Gangster Announces First Workshop
Denver, CO, March 3, 2017– The Genealogy Gangster foundation is proud to announce our first introductory class to be held on the first Saturday of April hopefully at the Park Hill Library located at 4705 Montview Boulevard in Denver Colorado. Our classes are free to the public however, we will take any love offering that the community wants to offer for our time and effort. In our first class, we will teach introductory techniques where youth can research using family search and family tree websites. We hope to have one basic class per month and one advanced class per month to start out with. Once we have more staff and more of a following from the youth in the community we will hold more classes more often.
“We hope to begin educating the next generation piquing interest from the youth in Genealogy.” – Kenneth Green, President
We hope to begin having these classes twice a month and develop a mobile computer lab that is composed of several computer labs allowing youth to eventually operate the computer labs themselves. “Teaching the next generation to love genealogy!” – Kenneth Green
