QDWASHINGTONLegacy QuickGuide: Washington Genealogy - 2.95 each
The cultural diversity of the State of Washington provides researchers with a broad scope of opportunity and variety of records. Museums and repositories are nearly as popular as coffee houses, and stretch to every corner of the 42nd state. You will find that although the Cascade Mountain range divides the state geographically, that there is no border in historical wealth and value; the less densely populated “Inland Empire” can provide the hidden gem you need.

The Washington Genealogy Legacy QuickGuide™ contains useful information including a timeline of Washington history events, tips on Washington research strategy, outline of major immigrant groups, and more. Also included are links to websites and resources covering vital records, church records, census records, as well as general Washington resources. This handy 5-page PDF guide can be used on your computer or mobile device for anytime access.
