Whether you're a Seattle resident or sitting at a computer thousands of miles away, you can benefit by membership in the Seattle Genealogical Society.

• Work side by side with highly experienced and skilled genealogists to gain exposure to valid methods of proving family facts.
• Attend educational programs to help hone your skills and introduce new techniques and resources.
• Volunteer to help create Washington data resources that will be used by generations of genealogists and family researchers. “Pay it back” to thank the volunteers who have preceded us and who contributed so greatly to our knowledge of our families’ histories.
• Research several areas of the country under one roof at the SGS Library.

 

In addition to the camaraderie, education, resources and knowledge benefits of membership in a genealogical society like SGS provides, you receive benefits that can make your membership fee pay for itself!
