Window(s) to the Past

windowofthepast Twenty eight (28) years ago, the Skagit Valley Genealogy Society was created.  In that time a lot of things happened to give the people in Skagit County the opportunity to pursue family history.  Along the way, the non-profit organization was able to create a vital publication (window) that allows us to look back to the past.

archived-newsletters  Those windows are in the form of newsletters.   Click on the Archived tab under Newsletters, you will see newsletters listed as far back as 2001.  In the process of scanning some casino online of the letters, I found scraps of SVGS history.  Allow me to give you some bits and pieces of some things I came across.
