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.

RESEARCH PLANNING: How to Develop a Plan that Works for You

Presented by Janet O’Conor Camarata

Research plans help genealogists stay organized and focused whether researching on-line or on-site. Design your own research plan after understanding the major components of the plan itself - analyze existing data, set goals and objectives, strategize the approach, identify resources and repositories, record findings and re-analyze the additions and changes to existing data. Several examples will be demonstrated to help you select the best technology to use.
