The Burlington Library has several great online resources in addition to the book collection of the Skagit Valley Genealogy Society. America’s Genealogy Bank includes Historical Newspapers (1690 – 1922), Historical Books (1749 – 1900), Historical Documents (1789 – 1994), Social Security Death Index (1937 – 2011).
We also have Ancestry.com Proquest Library Edition and Heritage Quest. These are also useful for local and regional history research in surprising ways. Give them a try. You just need your Burlington Public library card or to visit the library.
Contact library staff about how to make better use of them. The Skagit Valley Genealogy Society volunteers are also available on the first Saturday of the month (except holiday weekends) from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to help with detailed questions.
