ANNOUNCEMENT!

WAGS LIBRARY WILL BE CLOSED FOR THE TWO APPLE BLOSSOM WEEKENDS.

APRIL 25 & MAY 2

SORRY ABOUT THE INCONVENIENCE – INCREASED TRAFFIC & LIMITED PARKING MAKE THIS NECESSARY.

ENJOY THE APPLE BLOSSOM ACTIVITIES!

 

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.

 

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