The Northeast Washington Genealogical Society was formed in 1981 to stimulate and encourage interest in genealogical research. They meet the second Wednesday of every month except December: The computer interest group meets at 10:30 a.m. at The Family Fun Center and the general meeting takes place at 1:30 p.m. at the Family History Center, both in Colville, WA. The general meeting consists of a business meeting followed by an instructional lecture on some topic pertaining to researching family history. Meetings are open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend.
The society publishes a quarterly called, “Pioneer Branches,” which is sent to all members. The society maintains a genealogical collection in the Colville Public Library consisting of over 700 books, periodicals and microfilm with a special interest in the Northeast Washington counties of Stevens, Ferry, and Pend Oreille. All books in our collection remain in the library at all times; they can not be checked out, nor do they circulate on interlibrary loan.
