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. 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 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
