EWGS Toys for Tots Campaign
Again, EWGS is collecting Toys for Tots as part of our holiday activities. The toys you donate will be given to the Marine Corps program that is so well known. You can drop off toys at the locations found under the "Upcoming Events" menu at the left. These volunteers ask that you call before coming to their house to drop off toys. The final deadline for toy dropoff is December 12, 2021. Don't miss your chance to help!
Genealogy is one of those subjects that have an infinite life span. The deeper you dig the more exciting it can be!
We offer support and help in your journey. Below is a brief table of what we can provide you. Our website contains a LOT of information. We hope you will take some time and see what we have for you. If you need help or have questions, we are here.
The Table below contain links of the topics for your convenience.

Many members will be going on genealogy excursions or just taking more time to do research. I know you will make some exciting discoveries or see an interesting site.

FINDING YOUR HERITAGE
Most Friday mornings, you'll find Jeanne Coe, Lynda Keenan, Duane Beck, Lynn Krogh, Patricia Flint and Donna Phillips (behind the camera) at the MAC archives. We're on the home stretch of indexing the obituaries found in 25 big file drawers of Pacific Northwest biographies. As we have good times with this project, we often find SUCH interesting names and other stuff:
- Elvetta Lewis
- Nicholas Likarish
- Ozias Lewis
- Halaha Lewis (wife)
- Sonji Rutan's mother's obituary!
- Many lengthy 1920s newspaper stories of pioneer history
We've also opened biography envelopes for Abraham Lincoln and some others that we wonder why they're included at our MAC.
