Washington Pioneer Pursuit Contest

Join us in documenting the family histories of every man, woman and child that lived in Washington Territory on or before Statehood was declared on November 11, 1889 -- and win a prize!

The Washington State Genealogical Society invites all genealogical societies, historical societies and individuals to research and document every Pioneer  who resided here on or before November 11, 1889, and two subsequent generations  of their descendants. As an incentive, prizes will be awarded to societies and individuals who submit the most entries.
