Our collection of genealogical research materials is housed in the Genealogy Center at the Sylvan Way Branch of the Kitsap Regional Library (KRL) in Bremerton, Washington. PSGS volunteers are available to assist researchers in the Genealogy Center during regular library hours, which are: Mon 1-7pm; Tue & Wed 10am-7pm; Thu 1-5pm; Fri 10am-6pm; and Sat 10am-5pm. Our collection's location at Sylvan Way is the culmination of several years of conversations and planning that resulted in a partnership between PSGS and KRL that reflects our shared vision of providing research, educational, and genealogical information to the community at large.

The genealogical research collection includes books and periodicals from each state and several countries. In addition, family history books, guides and instructions, census data, and various compendia and records round out the collection. Microfilm and microfiche records are also on hand. The entire collection is available at no charge to researchers as a non-circulating reference collection. To find a book in our collection, go to the Catalog tab on the KRL website (http://www.krl.org/). Then, click the link to More Search Options located under the Search For box. At the next screen under the Collections section, scroll down and select Genealogical Center, then select Set Search Options. You will be returned to the Search page and can then enter your search terms. All results are located in the Genealogy Center.
