The next Family History Club meeting is 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 17, at the Snoqualmie Community Center and YMCA. The workshop is open to anyone in the community who is interested in family history, free of charge, and no appointment is needed.

Last month, 15 people gathered at the Y to work on their family roots, with help from workshop leaders, Erin Christensen and Bret Vincent. Christensen passed out a list of websites, both free and paid, providing access to family history information. One participant said she'd subscribed to one site for an annual fee of $40 and found the information well worth the money.

Sponsored by the Snoqualmie Falls Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the meetings are every third Tuesday at the Y. To learn more, send an e-mail to snofallsfamilyhistory@gmail.com.
