Welcome to our "Home Page"
 
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! 
 
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! 
 
About our website:
 
Our new KCGS website has a dual purpose.  First and foremost, we specialize in genealogical information from Kittitas County.  That’s information that you probably won’t find elsewhere.  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.  We invite you to explore some of our Kittitas County historic places your ancestors may have also enjoyed.  That may help you better understand what life was like for those early Kittitas County settlers!  Maybe you just need a little relaxing fun instead.  Either way, we suggest you try out the "Visit Kittitas County " menu link on the LEFT side of this webpage.  After all, don’t you want to experience a little bit of what life may have been like for your Kittitas ancestors or maybe make new memories for yourself?  We do want you to have a little fun while you are here so come visit 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.”
