Genealogy center to open March 2

The Clallam County Genealogical Society’s Research Center at 403 E. Eighth St., Port Angeles, will open for limited use — by both members and the public — beginning Tuesday, March 2.

The center will be open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday.

A limited number of individuals will be allowed in the center per COVID-19 rules; masks, physical separation, hand sanitizer and wipe-down of desks and computer terminals between users are required.

The center has ample space for eight to 10 simultaneous users, society representatives said last week.

Community members are encouraged to do research and answer such questions as: Where did your family come from? What did they do? How did they get here? Did they serve in the military?

The center has a dozen genealogy websites made available for free to users; typically, a few basic facts about parents or grandparents are all it takes to get started. The center also has ample parking in the lot north of the building.

Call the center to make sure space is available, at 360-417-5000.
