What’s New at SIGS - February 2024

As we roll into February, the Sno-Isle Genealogical Society (SIGS) is excited to bring you the latest updates and opportunities to enrich your genealogical journey. Here's what's happening in our community this month:

  1. Edmonds Tribune-Review Archives Digitized: Dive into the past with our digitized archives of the Edmonds Tribune-Review newspaper covering the years 1907-1927. Accessible for browsing and searching at Small Town Papers, creating a free account opens the door to a trove of historical newspapers. Explore the stories of yesteryear and uncover our community's history.

  2. Add Public Libraries to Your Toolbox - February 7th General Meeting: Join us on February 7th for a presentation by Nate Cushman from the Snohomish Library. Discover valuable tools and resources to enhance your genealogy toolkit. Open to members and non-members alike, this program is an opportunity to expand your research skills and connect with fellow researchers.

  3. Growing Community: Our community continues to flourish. We're delighted to welcome three new members, along with three renewing members. The attendance at both general meetings and our Monday coffee klatch has increased. Your active participation is making SIGS an engaging space for all.

  4. Welcome Margaret Summitt to the Board: SIGS welcomes Margaret Summitt to the Board of Directors as of January 2024. Joining Joe Davis, Craig Gowens, and Brenda Sanchez as at-large Directors, Margaret brings valuable insights to our leadership team. There's still one at-large position open – if you're interested in contributing to SIGS's growth, please email askus@snoislegenealogy.org.

  5. Brick Wall on Saturday, February 24th: Back by popular demand, Margaret Summitt is ready to assist with your genealogical challenges on February 24th. Don't miss this opportunity for a 40-minute session to break through those brick walls. Learn more at our calendar.

  6. Replay of Craig Gowens' DNA Presentation: If you missed Craig Gowens' insightful presentation on DNA in January, you can catch the replay on the SIGS YouTube channel. We're working on posting other past presentations and will continue to share new presentations as they become available.

In 2024 we are expanding our supportive community of amateur genealogists. We encourage you to invite family, friends, and acquaintances interested in family history to join our events in February.

Warm regards, The Sno-Isle Genealogical Society (SIGS) Team
