"Preserving Family History
Through Education and Research"


The Puget Sound Genealogical Society, located in Kitsap County, Washington, provides research, educational, and genealogical information through instruction and 3600+ publications in our genealogical collection. Whether searching for information in cemeteries or obituaries or looking for families in other databases, books, microfilm or CDs, we are here to help you. Classes at every level of genealogy research provide opportunities to explore Vital Records, Court Records, Church Records and also help to develop a Timeline for their ancestors along with the events of history.
