The Gateway State - Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania is an important "gateway" state. It was especially attractive to Germans and families from the British Isles. Its road system carried people from ports in Philadelphia, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland inward to the new frontier. So what could possibly go wrong in your Pennsylvania research?! How about immigrants on the move, numerous wars and uprisings, few vital records, unique court records and constant boundary changes! This afternoon, WVC's Instructor and Library Specialist Anne Livingston will help us maneuver through these snarls and tangles and give us hope as we research our Pennsylvania ancestors.
2:00 pm
Douglas County PUD Auditorium
1151 Valley Mall Parkway, East Wenatchee

We are an active group of members interested in helping others in the compilation of family genealogies and histories.  An important part of genealogy is the preservation of records of people's lives.  


Our library is a great place to get started.  We are open Tuesdays and Saturdays from 1-4 PM, located at 127 South Mission Street in Wenatchee, Washington, in the Annex building of the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center. [corner bldg.]


Our on-line database indexes include obituaries, cemeteries/interments, funeral records, Civil War and other military records, Chelan County marriage records (with a few other counties intermingled), Douglas County marriage records, and surnames compiled from our many library holdings of books, CDs, scrapbooks (of newspaper clippings), research folders, microfilm and fiche.


Copies of our records may be obtained by mailing us the downloadable request form provided for each type of record or by visiting our library. Friendly librarians are always there to help!


WAGS is a volunteer organization.  Fees for materials or research requests are charged to recover expenses and to enable us to obtain materials for the library.
