CCGS Receives Grant!!

Clallam Co. Genealogical Society has received a Grant from the Clallam Co. Heritage Advisory Board for $2400.00.  We put in a grant application to the Heritage Advisory Board for money to purchase needed equipment, to begin the project  of digitalizing our Obituary files.  Currently we have over 50,000 obituaries, dating back to the 1880's and to current times.  Some of the older newsprint obits are deteriorating and are in need of preservation.  By digitalizing all of our obits, we preserve them for future genealogist and improve access to them for all.  We greatly appreciated this generous gift!  If you are interested in working on this project, please contact the Research Center.
