These records are extractions of Birth,
Marriage and Death dates from the old Longmont Ledger newspaper
which was published from September 12, 1879. This index extends thru
1935, a total of about 56 years, although the Ledger was
published for many years beyond that. This information was extracted by
members of the Longmont Genealogical Society from a 3 by 5 card file
originally created by the WPA and housed at the Longmont Public Library.

Please note that the dates listed are not for the actual event, but the date the information was published in the Longmont Ledger. Where dates were vague and information sketchy, the microfilm of the original newspapers was examined.
The Longmont Ledger newspapers can also be found at www.coloradohistoricnewspapers.org/ if you would like to see the full issues or to verify the information in our index. However, the entire span of this index is not covered by the Colorado Historic Newspapers digital archive. Their copies are from Sep 1879 to Sep 1923, with many issues missing in the first few years.
Issues of additional Longmont newspapers can be found at the Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection (CHNC) website: Longmont Press (6 issues) from October 2, 1872 to July 22,1882; Two issue of the Longmont Times on Mar 31, and June 23, 1888; The Longmont Call from Oct 1899 to Aug 1918; the Longmont Daily Times from Jan 1918 to Dec 31, 1927 (three years and several other months are missing within this time span); and the Times-Call from Aug 28, 1934 to Jun 30, 1941. However, those papers have not been indexed. Nearly thirty other newspaper titles were published in Boulder county for various periods and at least a part of those issues are also available from the CHNC website.
