Clallam County Genealogical Society


We are trying an experiment this summer.  The CCGS Research Library will be open on Tuesday evenings from 5 PM - 8 PM starting Tuesday, June 21st. We hope to attract visitors who aren't able to come during regular hours, as well as members who prefer to be outside during those lovely summer days!   Please, spread the word and sign up for a fun evening of desk duty.
