Stillagaumish Valley Genealogical Society
In memory of Marietta Colbern Roth
 

Welcome

The Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society and Library (SVGS), serving Snohomish County and the Arlington, Washington area, has grown to include thousands of genealogical and historical books, microfilm and microfiche sets, and Internet access to free genealogy web sites. Our library is a depot for historical information pertaining to north Snohomish County and the Stillaguamish Valley, and its native populations and early settlers. The collection also contains material for all U.S. states and many foreign countries. This information is available to members and visitors free of charge during regular library hours.
 
SVGS is one of the select few independent genealogy libraries that has the honor of functioning as an Affiliate Library with the world-famous Family History Library in Salt Lake City. Affilate LIbraries are able to provide to records which individuals may not be able to view from home.
