Back in 1996 I became the volunteer for the newly created USGenWeb Project and adopted Skagit County WA . I had a brand new computer and an old passion for genealogy.
I, currently, have 1031 Skagit County pages online ie ... yearbook pictures, biographies, original databases, and queries and research notes. The information is on 3 different domains all searchable with my Pico search engine. In 2002 I became involved in a project to "place faces to the names of the 1159 Washington State men whose names are on the Vietnam Memorial Wall"
I have had several volunteers who have helped out creating databases and answering emails for this Skagit County. I am especially proud of the yearbook pages that we have placed online. I appreciate two of my most dedicated volunteers Elaine and Lyle Swan
I do not live in Skagit County and am unable to visit the courthouse or do obituary lookups. Recently I became a member of the Skagit Valley Genealogy Society. I encourage you to vist their website for additional research information on Skagit County. They have FREE database information on Skagit families, excellent genealogy publications, and have trained genealogists to do local research.
Before yah leave this section... Let's talk about the new "Skagit County Washington And Its People, 150 Years of Rich History and Heritage" Long Term project started by the Skagit County Genealogy Society.....
This is going to be truly awesome as this society has put together some great works in the past... (Available for purchase on their website) and I'm excited they are spearheading another great collection of genealogy....
