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 at SIGS

Season's greetings, genealogy enthusiasts! As we immerse ourselves in the spirit of the holidays, the Sno-Isle Genealogical Society (SIGS) is thrilled to share additional updates and meaningful events to mark on your calendar:

  1. Member-Only Festive Gathering on December 6th at 7 pm: Mark your calendars for our special Member-Only meeting on December 6th. Join us at 7:00 pm for a festive evening filled with camaraderie and holiday merriment. Bring an artifact or some of your research for our show and tell session, and let's share in the spirit of the season. It's a perfect opportunity to socialize and celebrate together. Not a member yet? Now is a good time to join.

  2. Brick Wall Session on December 16th: Facing genealogical challenges? Fear not! Our next Brick Wall Session is scheduled for December 16th. Don't miss this chance to receive expert guidance and break through those research barriers. Let's make progress together as we approach the end of the year.

  3. Cookies with Santa at Heritage Park on December 3rd: Join the Lynnwood-Alderwood Manor Heritage Association for a delightful holiday event at Heritage Park. Cookies with Santa will take place on December 3rd from noon to 3:00 pm. It's a fantastic opportunity to enjoy festive treats, capture holiday memories, and celebrate the season with our community.

  4. Worldwide Candle Lighting on December 10th: The Compassionate Friends sponsors the Worldwide Candle Lighting service on December 10th. At 7:00 pm local time across the world, people will light a candle in memory of a child who left too soon. As genealogists, we understand the importance of preserving memories, and this event provides a poignant moment to remember and honor those who were gone before their time. Learn more about this global initiative at Compassionate Friends - Worldwide Candle Lighting.

  5. Holiday Break for Zoom Coffee Klatch: In recognition of the holidays, please note that our Zoom coffee klatch calls will be on pause on December 25th and January 1st. We encourage everyone to take this time to celebrate with family and friends, and we look forward to resuming our virtual gatherings in the new year.

  6. Humble House Library Open Throughout the Holidays: Need a quiet place to escape the holiday hustle? The Humble House Library will remain open throughout the holiday season, providing you with a serene space to continue your genealogical explorations.  We are open 11:00 am to 3:00 pm on Thursdays and Saturdays.

Stay tuned to our calendar for detailed information on upcoming events, virtual gatherings and Brick Wall sessions.

As we conclude this year with gratitude for our shared genealogical journey, we extend our warmest wishes for a joyous holiday season. Thank you for being an integral part of the SIGS community. Here's to a month filled with connection, discovery, and the magic of the holidays!
