Clallam County Genealogical Society

After the WSGS conference, I got to spend a week in Port Angeles "teen sitting" a grandson. One highlight of that week was lunch with Ginny Majewski, President of the Clallam County Genealogical Society, and having a tour of their new library and building.

Ginny told me over lunch that CCGS currently has about 175 members, with 50 quite active and 25 very active. They have a great website ( and a Facebook page but no blog. Cyndi Ingle will be their upcoming October workshop speaker.

Here is Ginny welcoming me to their new library building:

Here are photos of the interior of the library; not shown is their computer room and conference room: 

Their collection includes many locality-specific items....... like the census of the Makah Indians, Neah Bay Agency, 1885-1899, and the census of the Quillayute Indians for the same years.  

The library seems not to have trouble getting volunteers to staff the library for all the days they are open as evidenced by the hanging rack of name tags to which Ginny points. 

I was most impressed with the news and doings of the Clallam County Genealogical Society, as told to me by Ginny Majewski, current president, and I was doubly impressed with their new facilities and library.

Congratulations, CCGS. We join our hands in clapping and voices in wishing you continued success in all your endeavors.
