A History of Saar Pioneer Cemetery And Its Inhabitants

Available Again!

$40.00 plus $6.00 shipping and handling

In 2005, the South King County Genealogical Society took on the monumental task of restoring the long-neglected and often-vandalized Saar Pioneer Cemetery, located at 91st and 212th Way, Kent, Washington.

The cemetery is the final resting place of nearly 200 early pioneers of Kent and surrounding areas. Their stories are documented in this book of over 400 pages, which was researched and compiled by members of the South King County Genealogical Society. The accounts illustrate the commitment these pioneers made in migrating across this country to build new homes and lives in the early White River Valley.

Rootless: A Retrospective of America's Fascination with its Ancestry

Presented by Jill Morelli & Lisa Oberg

An Overview of the History of the Interest in Genealogy

Jill Morelli

Jill Morelli is passionate about genealogy focusing on teaching/lecturing, writing and client work. Most often her genealogy clients are looking for an unusual gift for a loved one or to solve (or not!) a particular family tradition. Her life-long vocation as an architect makes her uniquely qualified to do house histories. She is familiar with the documents and reading plans but also equally familiar with the language of architecture. She lectures regularly to local and regional genealogical and non-genealogical groups. There is no more satisfying aspect of her work than getting someone as excited as she is about genealogy and their family history.

Lisa Oberg

Lisa Oberg is a lecturer and avid genealogist while also holding down a full time job at the University of Washington as head of Public Service/History of Science and Medicine Curat within Special Collections of University Libraries. She traces her Luxembourg and Swedish roots and is a member of many genealogical societies in the Puget Sound area and the Midwest.
