Diane Huckabay, President of the Kittitas County Genealogical Society, has become the driving force behind a new opportunity for local library visitors to learn about genealogy and family history research. Every Friday afternoon for the next couple of months at the Ellensburg Public Library, Diane is helping those interested in genealogical research. At her first session, Diane discussed family group sheets and pedigree charts. In addition, she provided resources and encouragement to those attending.
According to the library’s press release, one-on-one research consultations are also available to more experienced visitors and visitors with specific research questions. In addition to promoting genealogy and family history, Diane is encouraging interested visitors to attend the upcoming WSGS Conference at the Quality Inn in Ellensburg on Saturday, June 27, 2015.
There are preliminary plans, if successful in Ellensburg, to expand the family history research opportunity to neighboring libraries. The Ellensburg Public Library is located at 209 N. Ruby Street.
