Genealogical society meeting explores using tax records for family research

Used for more than just audits and references, tax records can help uncover one’s past.

The Genealogical Society of Clallam County hosts Jessie Stuart at its next meeting on Saturday, Sept. 9. Stuart, who works with the Jefferson County Genealogical Society, presents “Using taxes to find your ancestors” at the meeting set for 10 a.m.-noon in the Raymond Carver room of the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St.

Tax records are a source of documentation and can be a reliable resource, as Stuart discovered while sorting out her own relatives. A past president of the Jefferson County Society, Stuart is described as “an excellent, organized and interesting speaker and researcher.”

Genealogical society members welcome anyone interested in family history. There is no charge for attending this other other meetings and programs. Newcomers are asked to come 15-20 minutes early to register, have coffee or tea and visit.
