The Seattle Genealogical Society, founded in 1923, is an educational organization devoted exclusively to furthering genealogical research, promoting interest in family history, and preserving records. The Seattle Genealogical Society's mission is to serve as a community resource for quality genealogical research and education.
 
We conduct meetings, offer classes and seminars, compile and publish research materials, and maintain a computer-equipped, 13,000-item library open to the public for researching family history. Wherever your ancestors lived, please consider joining us. Please come visit our library and check out our resources covering every U.S. state and many countries. Check out our Calendar to see the range of programs and classes we offer.
 
 

Calling all Writers!  
Are you a writer of your family history?  Are you more interested in documenting the family stories than the tight structure of a researched narrative?  Then this is your contest!  The Spring SGS Bulletin will include the top articles submitted to SGS in the genre of “creative nonfiction.” These are not heavily footnoted articles but rather are instead focused on character development and interesting narrative.  Check out the Publications page for the entry form and further submission guidelines.

SGS Spring Seminar
The SGS 2015 Spring Seminar, "Who's Your Daddy? Researching Your Family History in the Mid-South States," with C. Lynn Andersen will be held on May 9, 2015. Registration will be open soon! Visit the Seminars page for more information about the seminar topics and speaker.
