A Potlatch Presentation
A Potlatch is a gift-giving feast practiced by the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest. Fred Pflugrath will gift WAGS members and guests with his rare insight into the history and culture of the Native American tribes in the Lower Columbia. Sandra Pflugrath (1942-1997) was once honored by a potlatch for her involvement in bettering the lives of Klickitat Indian girls, and Fred will show photos of this special occasion. A glimpse further back in time will show Celilo Falls before 1957, when it became submerged by the construction of The Dalles Dam. Celilo Village, located nearby, remains the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in North America. So give yourself a wonderful gift and attend our September meeting!

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!
