Library Closure Update (15 June 2020)
Due to COVID-19 outbreak in Seattle, the SGS Board has decided to close the SGS Library at 6200 Sand Point Way and not reopen until King County has been approved for Phase 4 of the Washington State plan for recovering from the COVID-19 shutdown. This action has been taken to help protect our members, guests, and patrons.
Note that only the library facility is closed. Many Society activities such as seminars, workshops, and SIG meetings are being moved on-line. See the Calendar of Events and the bi-monthly eNews! SGS electronic newsletter for details. COVID-19 can close our Library, but it can’t shut down the Society!
Keep up to date with the SGS eNews! sent to your email twice a month.

Take a look at our Surname Registry

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.)
