Find Family Connection with a Neighbor

May 24, 2021 10:12 AM
The connections that we are creating on the Family Tree for people that lived in Skagit County will make it easier for you to see how you are related to your friends and family. You’ll need a free FamilySearch account to do this activity but your friend or neighbor won’t. Simply use the find a person feature on the FamilySearch mobile app and have them tell you a bit about one of their deceased ancestors. Once you find the profile for their ancestor you can click the “view my relationship” button to see how you are related. Here is a video about how to do this. If you both have a FamilySearch account, you can use “relatives around me” which is shown in this video.

Find Connection with Past Residents

This video shows how you can find out how you are related to famous people from history. Because of the connections that we have created on the Family Tree for Skagit County, you can do the same thing for almost anyone who lived in Skagit County in the past. You can find your connection to local history by looking those people up on the Family Tree. This can be a great way to enrich your study of local history or have a personal connection when you visit a local museum.

We have also set up a Relative Finder group for people who are depicted in the exhibits in the Sedro-Wooley Museum.
