Diana Keehn Named One of WSGS’s Outstanding Volunteers in 2023

Since 2003, the Washington State Genealogical Society has recognized over 600 outstanding volunteers and teams, nominated by their local society or genealogical organization for their service and dedication. These volunteers are the backbone of their local society, giving their time and expertise, to the organization and the field of genealogy. In the coming months, you will be introduced to each of the 2023 award recipients and learn why they received the 2023 WSGS Outstanding Volunteer and Team Award.

Today we’re introducing Diana Keehn of Marysville, Washington, who was nominated by the Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society (SVGS).

Diana is currently a volunteer librarian and publicity chair (a board position) at SVGS. As publicity chair, she promotes the society primarily via social media such as the SVGS Facebook page, Arlington Newsletter, Washington State Genealogical Society blog and Conference Keeper. As a volunteer librarian, she assists with cataloging new additions at the library, and is noted for one-to-one training and encouragement of patrons in how to do research themselves to find the answers to their questions in the extensive collection. She participates in various research groups and is usually available to “do whatever needs to be done.”
