Description

The Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society and Library was founded by Marietta Roth in 1985. We incorporated a year later and obtained non-profit status with the IRS and the State of Washington. Our library has grown to include thousands of rare and interesting books, microfilm and microfiche sets, a CD collection, and internet access. We have gathered historical information pertaining to the northern part of Snohomish County and the Stillaguamish Valley, and its native populations and early settlers. Also related references from other cities, states and countries. This information available to members and visitors during regular library hours.
