About SIGS

Why Visit SIGS

At Sno-Isle Genealogical Society (SIGS) we are devoted to furthering genealogical research and education through our library at Humble House in Lynnwood, Washington and through educational events and focus groups. Our focus is on promoting interest in family history through our collection of local, national, and event based genealogical materials. Our volunteers are committed to recording and researching genealogical data concerning Snohomish and Island Counties in the State of Washington.  We have a large collection of local resources including obituaries, personal histories, and other locally curated material.

The Society offers research services from our eclectic collection of resources via phone or email.  Membership in SIGS helps support the running of our physical location, Humble House, and members receive a newsletter published 10 times per year, and access to purchases at the SIGS Bargain Bookstore.

In-person research help is available by visiting our Lynnwood, Washington location. Our dedicated group of volunteers have a passion for genealogical research.  Whether you prefer the “old-fashion” paper recordings, utilizing technology, or have embraced genetic genealogy our staff have the knowledge and desire to help you unravel those genealogical mysteries.
