Here at Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society(SVGS), we are committed to genealogy education. Toward this endeavor, we have guest speakers at most of our monthly meetings. Some of the topics I have been privileged to hear were: Free and Low-Cost Case Law Research presented by Kim Ositis, Reference Librarian at the Public Law Library of King county; Telling Stories with DNA: Genetic Genealogy Basics presented by CeCe Moore, Genetic Genealogist; Stretch Your Genealogy Dollar presented by Flynn Clarke Kennedy, Education Chair, SVGS; Tennessee Research and Beginning Over both presented by Laura Pemberton Sparr, past president of the Washington State Genealogical Society. I learned something new and valuable from each that I could utilize in my own research.
At our June 14th meeting Laura Pemberton Sparr will return, by popular request, to give a presentation on Pennsylvania Research. When Laura speaks, she usually shares resources and strategies that are universal and so I am sure everyone, even those who do not have Pennsylvania ancestors, will come away with some resource or tool to help them further their quest to find their ancestors. I hope that you will be able to join us for this presentation. Our meetings are held at Hadley Hall, Arlington Boys and Girls Club, 18513 59th Ave NE, Arlington, WA – Meeting Time 1pm.
