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.
 

SGS NEEDS 40 VOLUNTEERS
for the 2016
 PACIFIC NORTHWEST SCOTTISH HIGHLAND GAMES

Saturday, July 30 & Sunday, July 31
Enumclaw Expo Center
 

- COME LISTEN TO THE BAGPIPES – WATCH THE DANCERS –
- VISIT THE CLANS – HELP SGS PROMOTE GENEALOGY -

We need volunteers to help at the Seattle Genealogical Society and Library booth during the Pacific Northwest Scottish Highland Games in Enumclaw. We have been participating for many years and it is a great way to let the public know about SGS and to promote membership. Our participation also gives us valuable community outreach credit for our grant applications with 4Culture which has resulted in thousands of dollars for our equipment and projects. Game attendance is about 30,000 for the weekend. Most of the people who come to the SGS booth don't have an understanding of their Scottish or Irish heritage and have not done any research. They primarily want to know two things:
 
1. "What clan do I belong to?"    
2. "What tartan can I use?"
 
We need twenty volunteers for each day;  two volunteers for each two hour session and three people during  the peak afternoon hours. We will supply you with a free ticket for the games. Parking will be at your own expense at $7.00 per day. We encourage carpooling.  

Please contact me before June 19th.  Send along your name, email address, phone contact,  age if you are over 62 and a time preference, if you have one.

Thanks so much.
