Genealogical Society welcomes guest speaker

The Bainbridge Island Genealogical Society will meet at 10 a.m. Friday, July 19 in the Bainbridge Public Library meeting room.

Gary Zimmerman, of the Fiske Genealogical Foundation in Seattle, will speak on “Land Records from the Public Domain,” covering how the federal government acquired initial title to the public domain and then redistributed it to private owners. Members will look at how those records enhance family history research.

The suggested donation for non-members is $5.
