The Bainbridge Island Genealogical Society (BIGS) will meet Friday, May 17, 2019, at the Bainbridge Island Public Library on Bainbridge Island, 1270 Madison Ave N, from 10:00a.m. – 12 noon. The topic for the BIGS Monthly Meeting will be “Finding Your Immigrant Ancestors”, presented by Claire Smith of Massachusetts, formerly of Bainbridge Island, and one of the founding members of BIGS. We all have immigrant ancestors, whether they came in Colonial times or more recently. We’ll be looking at strategies for tracking down their places of origin, finding out whether records exist, where to find them and what they can tell you. Parking is available in the 2 library parking facilities, accessed from High School Ave and Madison Ave North. Free to members, a $5.00 donation is suggested for nonmembers. For more information go to http://www.bigenealogy.org or call 206-755-9283. BIGS is a 501c(3) non-profit organization.
