Thanks for visiting. Don't forget to check back often because we update and add new records regularly.


Orders will be filled on receipt of printed "Record Request Form" and payment. Please use the menu at the left to move through the Website and Database Indexes.


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.

The Dakota War of 1862: Death of a Dream
Pastor Paul Lundborg (former Pastor of Grace Lutheran Church) began his genealogical search upon his retirement in 2006. He quickly came face-to-face with his immigrant Swedish ancestors' tragic involvement in the Dakota Uprising in Minnesota. This afternoon you'll learn more about this little-known chapter in American history, as well as Lundborg's process of discovering rich family materials as he fleshed out this important family story.
He published Death of a Dream in 2012, the 150th anniversary of the Dakota War.
Note: For those of you who can't come to the afternoon meeting, Pastor Lundborg will be speaking at Celebration Lutheran Church (801 8th Street NE, East Wenatchee) at 7:00 p.m. the same night (March 9).
2:00 pm at Douglas County PUD: 1151 Valley Mall Parkway, E. Wenatchee
