Wenatchee Area Genealogical Society
Welcome to the WAGS website.
WAGS building. 133 S Mission St, Wenatchee, WA

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

 

Please visit our "Events" menu to see our upcoming activities.

 

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.

 

Materials obtained from WAGS Website may not be reproduced for resale and/or profit without permission from WAGS.


OUR NEXT GENERAL MEETING

Monday, June 8
Shoot First! Enhance your family stories with videography.
Could videotaping add another dimension to your genealogy? Local videographers John and Helen Njus (say "news") will show recent interviews with WWII veterans, naturalized citizens, and families. They will include tips on how to prepare for a shoot, simplify editing, and where to seek help. John and Helen volunteer with Twin Rivers Productions, operating under the auspices of Aging and Adult Care of Central Washington.
 
MEMBERS & NON-MEMBERS ARE WELCOME!
 
2:00 pm at Douglas County PUD: 1151 Valley Mall Parkway, E. Wenatchee
