The Seattle Genealogical Society (SGS) is an all-volunteer, non-profit educational organization devoted exclusively to furthering genealogical research, promoting interest in family history, and preserving records. 
The mission of the Seattle Genealogical Society is to provide educational opportunities and to collect and disseminate quality genealogical information for family history researchers in our community.
We conduct meetings, offer classes and seminars, compile and publish research materials, and maintain a computer-equipped library open to the public for researching family history. Visit the library and check out our resources covering every U.S. state and many countries. 
SGS publishes a semi-monthly newsletter, the SGS eNews!, with upcoming events and articles of interest to the genealogical community. Membership in SGS is not required to receive the newsletter. Learn more and sign up to our e-mail list.
  Classes at SGS
SGS publishes the Journal of the Seattle Genealogical Society (formerly the SGS Bulletin) twice each year. Online access to current and recent issues is limited to SGS members; older issues of the SGS Bulletin are available to the public in a searchable database through the Seattle Public Library. Find out more about the Journal of the SGS.
Membership in SGS is open to anyone interested in the pursuit of genealogy. Wherever your ancestors lived, please consider joining us. Seattle roots are not required! Read more about becoming a member of SGS.
