Below are some links for family history resources and questions – start planning a project for family visits this holiday season.  They don’t have to be long, they don’t have to be formal.  But try one and figure out how it might work best for your family or community.

On Saturday and Sunday my husband and I watched from the Port of Mabana on Saratoga Passage looking west as the canoes paddled their way north towards LaConner. It was inspiring to watch these amazing vessels and imagine the experience. They navigated their way against significant headwinds most of the day.

This traditional Coast Salish gathering has been more impressive each year with participation from as far away as Alaska.  The ones here are heading north and probably intending to arrive at Cama Beach State Park which is one of the camping sites for the journey.
