Vendor Spotlight: National Archives in Seattle, Washington

The National Archives in Seattle will be a exhibitor at the Washington State Genealogical Society's 2009 State Conference at The Davenport Hotel in Spokane this coming weekend.
The National Archives offers insight into the lives of people, their families and our history. Because the records at the National Archives come from every branch of the Federal government, almost all Americans can find themselves, their ancestors, or their community in the archives. Knowing how a person interacted with the government is key to a successful search.
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)'s Pacific Alaska Region facility in Seattle has 83 record groups, representing Federal agencies, bureaus, or other administrative units including federal courts in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. Carol Anne Buswell, Education Specialist for the National Archives in Seattle will be on hand at the state conference to answer questions about the records collections in Seattle and how to access them. If your ancestors lived in the Pacific Northwest, you will want to take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about the archives and how they can help you in your genealogical research. We look forward to having the National Archives in Seattle at our state conference!
