Need direction?

  • Are you just getting started in your family history research, but it all seems murky?
  • Do you feel like you're floundering in your research?
  • Are you sure your ancestors are under a rock somewhere, or lost at sea?

This year at the Kitsap County Genealogy Expo, we will have a consultation table in the Cultural Hall. Like a light shining in the dark, the helpers there will make every effort to guide you to the answers you're seeking. They can assist you by sharing research techniques, leading you to resources that may be just what you need to locate that elusive piece of information. You will have the opportunity to visit, one-on-one, with a consultant who has much research experience, and a desire to assist. If one can't help, another can. We will do our best to help you find success!

Join us!     Saturday, April 25th ~ 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. ~ Silverdale, WA

Why Attend a Genealogy Expo??

I was trying to figure out why someone should attend the Kitsap County Genealogy Expo. Because, then, you know, I could do a better job of convincing folks to come! I know I've benefited personally from going to events like this one, but I figured it was because I really wanted to be there, and I was really hoping to learn something new.

Then, I realized that one of the unexpected outcomes, of a very pleasant nature, was the opportunity of spending time, a fairly long time, with a whole bunch of people who also wanted to be there. A whole bunch of people, who, like me, loved (or, were at least interested in) genealogy and family history

We shared family stories with each other. We traded business cards (more like calling cards in most of our cases). We rejoiced and lamented over a variety of research experiences. And, we just plain reveled in being with other people who love what we love!

That's why YOU should come!

While digging around, I found this recent blog post by Amy Johns Crow at No Story Too Small, with some of the same sentiments. I enjoyed it. I hope you do, too.

The Final Push!

The Expo is right around the corner, and we are in the final stretch with our preparations.

The live presentations are all scheduled. Our presenters are excited and looking forward to sharing their knowledge, experience, and expertise with those who attend their classes.

Our exhibitors and consultants are ready to show and share in the Cultural Hall.

We look forward to seeing many who have attended before, along with lots of new folks. All of us with the same interest - our family history!

Get ready for a great time, pass on the info, and bring a friend!
