Skagit Valley Genealogical
To Offer Genealogy Research Help by Appointment
BURLINGTON – The Skagit Valley Genealogical Society (SVGS) now offers free, one-on-one research assistance by experienced genealogy volunteers. To schedule a family history research consultation call 360-840-3002. This new consultation by-appointment offering replaces SVGS’ former program of volunteers being available on first Saturdays of the month at the Burlington Library.
SVGS also offers educational programs by genealogy experts on the second Saturday of the month, 1:00-3:00 p.m. at the Burlington Public Library, 820 E. Washington Avenue. The public is invited to attend SVGS’ membership meetings and programs. No meetings are held in July, August and December. For details and to become a member of SVGS visit skagitvalleygenealogy.org or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
SVGS’ September 14 program will be an introductory tutorial about using a new software program called DNA Painter. SVGS’ DNA genealogy expert Barbara Johnson will be the guest speaker. This new software tool will help genealogists to easily clarify DNA matches by defining the common shared ancestor in a DNA match.
