About Us

   The Puget Sound Genealogical Society, located in Kitsap County, Washington, provides research, educational, and genealogical information through instruction, both classes and programs.   We have 3600+ publications in our genealogical collection. The primary purpose of PSGS is: “Preserving Family History Through Education and Research.”


Most of our activities are focused on education and research.  Our  Genealogy Center is located at the Sylvan Way Library, (Kitsap Regional Library), 1301 Sylvan Way, Bremerton.  The Center provides resources for our own research as well as assisting genealogists from other parts of the country.  The Sylvan Way Library and our Genealogy Center has been designated as a FamilySearch Affiliate Library.

Our society's members meet monthly to learn about upcoming activities and share research discoveries. The meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of each month at Sylvan Way, except for November and December.   November's meeting is on the 3rd Wednesday;  there is not meeting in December.  Visitors are always welcome! Come early at 12:30 pm for fellowship. The meeting starts at 1:00 pm with a program on genealogy topics designed to enrich our members' knowledge and skills. Program speakers come from the surrounding Puget Sound area and are eager to share their expertise. The business meeting follows at 2:00 pm. A list of upcoming program topics is found on the Programs page.

Our monthly meeting and classes are being held in-person and on Zoom.  In-person is in the Heninger Meeting Room at the Sylvan Way Library.
