The BGS Quarterly is published four times a year: February, May, August, and November. The February issue provides the Annual Subject Index; the May issue includes the Directory of Members; the August issue offers detailed Submission Guidelines; and the November issue contains the Annual Surname Index. A quarterly publication has been issued by the Boulder Genealogical Society since 1968.

A subscription to the Quarterly is included with each membership. Quarterly subscriptions are mailed to non-members for $20.00 per year. Back issues, when available, are $2.00 each, plus $1.60 for shipping and handling. Requests from foreign countries: add an additional $3.00 in U.S. funds. Special rates are available for quantity orders.

Members and friends are invited to submit original manuscripts on genealogical topics with an emphasis on Boulder County records and research. A .pdf file of general article ideas and ideas for 1880s topics are available.

All submissions should be typed and can be submitted by regular mail, by hand, by e-mail to the BGS Quarterly Editor, or by CD to the BGS address. The author should include a complete name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, if available. All materials will be carefully considered for publication. Any significant changes or suggestions will be referred back to the author before publication. Photos, maps, charts, and diagrams in crisp, clear format are definitely encouraged. Material must be received at least six weeks prior to publication.

Neither the Boulder Genealogical Society nor the Quarterly staff is responsible for any errors of fact, or for opinions expressed or implied by the contributors. Substantiated corrections will be included in future publications.

The Boulder Genealogical Society retains the copyright to the compilation of the BGS Quarterly. Submitters retain copyright to their individual submissions. Request for permission to use or duplicate any material contained within the Quarterly should be addressed in writing to the author of the article.

BGS members, and those with a Colorado ancestral connection may submit 5-generation charts for publication. The chart should start with the submitter as No. 1.
