There’s Something About “Home!”
The mention of “home” and other words associated with home always brings to mind memories!  In this case, “home” refers to the new home of the Kittitas County Genealogical Society (KCGS) of Kittitas County, in Washington state.  It’s likely that YOU have some connection to Kittitas County and genealogy or you wouldn’t now be at our “Home page.”  Welcome! 
Through information on our website, we hope to provide you with links to other things that are tied to “home.” It might be to information about an ancestor’s “homestead” in Kittitas County.  Maybe it will lead to memories about a “hometown” in the county.  Perhaps, as in baseball when you travel around the bases and finally touch “home plate”, it will score you a much sought after clue to a puzzle about your heritage.  We invite you to try some of the menu options on the left side of this webpage and perhaps you will score as well.
As everyone knows, if you want to know where the best place to eat in a town is, you need to ask one of the “locals.”  We at KCGS hope you will check with us “Locals” as you search for your “roots” in Kittitas County.  We are here to help you in whatever way we can!  Let us help you remember some old memories or create new ones of your “home.”
About our website:
Our new KCGS website has a dual purpose.  First and foremost we specialize in genealogical information about Kittitas County.  That’s information that you won’t find anyplace else.  We also have information regarding many other places around the globe but Kittitas County is where we shine the most. 
Our second purpose is to spotlight life in Kittitas County by providing some interesting historic and fun places and things to do when you aren’t digging for your genealogical information.  After all, don’t you want to add a little “meat” about what life was like for your Kittitas ancestors or maybe make new memories for yourself?  We do want you to have a little fun while you are visiting us, either in person, or on the web.
So do some “digging” for your roots and then spend a little time exploring Kittitas County.  We’ll even “leave the light on for you!”  After all that, we hope you’ll have new memories of “home.”
