Join WGS and Volunteer


You can help WGS by joining our society.  Some of our members have generations of family who have lived in Whatcom County, and some of us are the first of our family to make a life here.  Have ancestors who immigrated from Germany?  We can help with that!  Have English ancestry?  Well, we can help with that, too! We have a welcoming and knowledgeable membership, and we enjoy helping each other.  It doesn't matter if you are a seasoned researcher or a total beginner - WGS membership has something for you.  We hope that after you join, you will consider volunteer opportunities when they arise.  Click here for the membership application.
