The new SGS Library is Open
Our new SGS Library is now open for research at an historic building in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle:
4649 Sunnyside Ave N, Seattle WA 98103
We have the same phone number as before: (206) 522-8658.
While we are settling in, open hours are:
10:00 am to 3:00 pm
Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday
In addition to the library book collection, wireless Internet access is available. Three library computers offer subscription databases Ancestry.com, Fold3, Newspapers.com Extra, and American Ancestors. FamilySearch Affiliate records may be viewed on any Internet-connected computer within the library.
Due to COVID restrictions the total number of people in the library space is limited to six at this time, and masks are required at all times while in the building. Please call to see if the library is already at or near capacity before you come down.

Take a look at our Surname Registry
Do you want to collaborate with SGS members? Have you wondered if a member has a research area similar to your own? To find out, visit the online database SGS Member Surname Registry at the link below. You will find a searchable list of research names added exclusively by our members.
For each entry you can view more details by selecting the "eye" icon, or you can write a message to the member by selecting the "envelope" email icon. Follow the instructions to send the message on our secure website system. (Note, you will not have access to the member's name or contact information unless they choose to reply, and we cannot guarantee that you will receive a response.)
Members, if you would like to view or edit your research names list, log in and go to your Member Profile page. Then click on the "Surnames" tab.
|FamilySearch Affiliate Library
The Seattle Genealogical Society is an Affiliate Library for the Family History Library in Salt Lake City and FamilySearch.org. This means that when you are inside the SGS Library either using your own computer or our Patron Computers you will be able to access the "locked" records at FamilySearch.org. You will be prompted to sign up for a FREE account through FamilySearch.org, or to sign in to your own account and then you can access the records. The service is available during normal hours at the SGS research library.
