In compliance with the most recent directives issued by the Governor’s office to limit the impact of the latest spike in COVID-19 cases, the Research Center is currently closed. We are sad to close our doors so soon after reopening but the safety and well-being of our  volunteers, and visitors is always our highest priority.

CCGS Research Center now a FamilySearch Affiliate!
This is great news for our Society and genealogy researchers!  When you come into the CCGS Research Center and use our computers to access, you will have increased access to records previously only available at a Family History Center.  Come in and see what you can find!


Not currently open to the public, our collection of over 3,100 books covers the United States and the world.  Members can check out materials from the separate lending library.  The computer room provides access to a variety of subscription databases, such as Ancestry and Fold3.  Click on Research LINKS to take you to LibraryThing, or click on Library/Archives, and then click on LibraryThing.  This takes you to our library catalog.  
Our Research Center is staffed by volunteers who can help with your project.  For a donation, our researcher will do it for you. 
Member benefits  include discounts on seminars, research, and a subscription to our quarterly newsletter.
Pioneer family files, early family files, Native American census, school census, early vital records, probate abstracts, and county histories will interest Clallam County researchers.  Go to Local Records to view and to print indexes.
