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.
