I love microfilm. There, I've said it. I know, it's not flashy, but there's something about it... One of my first research projects in college involved scrolling through reels of the 1850s Times of India. That physical paper would have been off limits to me, the paper so fragile that it would fall apart if breathed on wrong.
Sylvan Way Library is a great place to visit for novice and experienced genealogists alike.
Kitsap Regional Library in partnership with the Puget Sound Genealogical Society provides a Genealogy Center at the Sylvan Way Branch. PSGS volunteers at the center can help you understand and use the genealogical resources available at KRL and in the special genealogical collection housed in the center. In addition, PSGS offers a series of classes to help you get going in genealogical research and presents monthly programs at their general membership meetings.
