2.  There is a new Special Interest Group being formed – the England/Wales SIG. The first meeting will be on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at the LDS Church in Bellevue from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. The address is 10675 NE 20the St. It will be in the Relief Society room. You can enter from the outside through a sliding glass door. Those of you who have been attending other SIGs meeting in this facility will know where it is. We will see if this time works for most of the interested participants. We may have other meetings outside of this time frame periodically accommodate more people. If you need to contact me, my email is  Carol Pattison

3.  Recently a mother brought to the Bellevue Library her deceased daughter’s yearbooks from Chinook MS and Bellevue HS. She wanted to donate them to the Genealogy Society. However, this is something the library cannot take. Darcy Brixey, from the library, called Chinook MS to see if they wanted the yearbooks from Chinook, and the library there said YES. Bellevue HS already has those years. (78-80). The library is looking for suggestions for what to do with the yearbooks from Bellevue High for the years 1978-1980. If you have an idea, please contact Darcy Brixey at
