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.
April is coming to an end and May is just around the corner.
SIGS along with the other Heritage Park Partners and City of Lynnwood Parks and Recreation held a park clean-up event on April 5th. The park looks great and Humble House is tidy. Be sure to stop by when you get a chance. SIGS is open from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm on Thursdays and Saturdays. We're looking for a couple of volunteers who can work on Tuesdays. Let us know if you are interested.
The elections for SIGS officers is underway. All eligible Members will receive an online ballot and can fill it out until 8:00 am on Wednesday, May 3, 2023. Members can also vote in person at the May 3rd General Meeting.
