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, 15,000-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.
