How do I research my family's history?

Our web site links to many terrific online genealogy e-sources which can help you get started. 

In addition, there are a variety of tools available in the Northwest Room at the downtown Main Library. The Washington State Birth Index, Death Index, and Marriage Index, censuses for Washington state (and other states) and various family histories and genealogy books will help you begin tracing your family tree.

Staff will show you all of the available resources, as well as provide suggestions for further assistance.
