Puget Sound Genealogical Society

Genealogy Center

Open Monday - Saturday, Noon-4 p.m.

Located inside the Sylvan Way branch, the Puget Sound Genealogical Society volunteers share their collection and assist researchers at the Genealogy Center.

The genealogical non-circulating reference collection includes books and periodicals from each state and several countries, featuring family history books, guides and instructions, census data, microfilm, microfiche and various compendia and records round out the collection. Microfilm and microfiche records are also on hand.

Only available at the Sylvan Way branch and the Genealogy Center, we are designated a FamilySearch Affiliate Library for the FamilySearch Library in Salt Lake City and FamilySearch.org. Computer use in the Genealogy Center or the Sylvan Way branch will allow you access to some of these locked records.
