Sno-Isle Genealogical Society

Welcome to the Sno-Isle Genealogical Society

We are devoted to furthering genealogy research and education through our library at Humble House in Lynnwood, Washington and through educational events and focus groups. Our focus is on promoting interest in family history through our collection of local, national, and event based genealogical materials. Our volunteers are committed to recording and researching genealogical data concerning Snohomish and Island Counties in the State of Washington.  We have a large collection of local resources including obituaries, personal histories, and other locally curated material.

What’s New?

Welcome back for Sno-Isle Genealogical Society's (SIGS) 2023-2024 season.  Many thanks to Meghan Caves for kicking off the year with her enlightening presentation, "Privy to the Details," on September 6th.
Upcoming Event:
On October 4th, we are thrilled to welcome Emily Palmer from Beck's Funeral Home. She will delve into genealogical records from a funeral home. This presentation will be available both in-person and online, ensuring everyone can join us. It's open to members and the general public.
Brick Wall Saturday:
Has your research hit a brick wall?  Do you need some tips, strategies, and resources to help you overcome your research obstacles?  We are offering four 40-minute sessions with an experienced genealogy researcher who can give you a fresh perspective on your challenge.   
Partner Events:
Our Heritage Park partner, the Lynnwood-Alderwood Manor Heritage Association, is hosting Living Voices performance of Native Vision on September 17th. Mixing theater and film, you'll learn about the Native American experience from government boarding schools to the Navajo Code Talkers.
Join the Community:
Don't forget to check our In The Library calendar for more details about our Upcoming Events and Brick Wall sessions. And join us most Monday mornings on Zoom for a virtual coffee klatch, where we discuss all things genealogy. For details, be sure to visit our Events on Zoom calendar.
We look forward to sharing our passion for genealogy with you throughout this season. Stay connected with SIGS, and let's embark on this genealogical journey together.
