Basics of genealogy research

A series of four Monday evening classes will give family historians tips to get started.


Tracing family history can be a daunting task. With a variety of databases, Internet searches and software available, it’s hard to know where to start.

The Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society will offer a series of Monday evening classes, beginning April 7 and continuing through April 28, that can help would-be family historians get off on the right track.

Instructor Steve Baylor is an accomplished genealogy researcher, past president of local and state genealogical societies, and the current Library Director for SVGS. Baylor has helped guide many beginners, and more advanced researchers, through the maze of discovery.

Topics for the Monday night classes, which will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at SVGS, 215 S. French St. in Arlington, include learning how to start organizing family history records, setting research goals, locating records, building a family database, and finding further educational opportunities.

To register, call (360) 435-3448. For more information, contact SVGS at (360) 435-4838 or email
