We have recently added new profiles of Hamilton, Sterling, Marblemount, Conway. Plus family profiles of Jesse Beriah Ball, founder of Sterling, Arthur Seidell, who helped capture Jefferson Davis at the end of the civil war, and Harry Devin, pioneer realtor of Sedro and Woolley.
We provide 100 free stories with 300 photos of regional history and culture. Our site is designed to help students, genealogists and history buffs to discover original sources and we share our research of documents, family memories, photos and newspaper and magazine articles, plus reprints from early history books. We also have an online subscriber-paid magazine with more in-depth research of regional pioneers, railroads and towns. We also help students with history projects at all levels.
Editor Noel V. Bourasaw of Sedro-Woolley, Washington, dedicates the site to the principle of committing random acts of historical kindness. Research queries are welcomed. Celebrating first anniversary on August 26, 2001, with 21,000 page views. Email:
