SGS is a Family Search Library!
The Seattle Genealogical Society recently became an Affiliate Library for FamilySearch.org. When you are inside our Library either using your own computer or our patron computers you will be able to access the "locked" records on FamilySearch.org. You will be prompted to sign up for a FREE account through FamilySearch.org, or to sign in to your own account and then you can access the records. We are very excited about this affiliation with FamilySearch.org. The service is available during normal hours at our research library.
SGS Library Hours
Beginning May 1, 2019 the SGS Library has new hours. We are open Tuesdays through Saturdays 10 am - 3 pm. We will open at other times, including evenings and Sundays when we hold events. Check our calendar to see what's coming up! http://seattlegenealogicalsociety.org/calendar-node-f…/month
