Most archives, historical societies, and genealogical societies have special collections and indexes of genealogical value. These must usually be searched in person. Two manuscript collections of compiled genealogies are:

Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Collection. This collection consists of transcripts of Bible, cemetery, church, marriage, death, obituary, and will records. It was microfilmed in 1970 at the DAR Library in Washington, DC, and is on ten films at the Family History Library (beginning on Family History Library film 849910). The volumes are generally arranged by county, and many have individual indexes.

The Spanish-American Mission Collection. This is a collection of family group sheets giving the ancestry of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from the southwest. It is on microfilm at the Family History Library filmed in 1973 and 1980 (Family History Library films 940001-6).

Publications with genealogical information about early settlers of Colorado include:

Territorial Daughters of Colorado. Pioneers of the Territory of Southern Colorado.  Four Volumes. Monte Vista, Colorado: C.B.I. Offset Printers, 1980. (Family History Library book 978.8 D2p.)

Colorado Families: A Territorial Heritage. Denver: Colorado Genealogical Society, 1981. (Family History Library book 978.8 D3c.)
