Women’s History in Snohomish County

Two new stories have been posted on our Women’s Legacy Project page ~

One story on Pilchuck Julia by Betty Gaeng of the Sno-Isle Genealogical Society.

The other is of Luella Boyer, an African American businesswoman who lived in Everett.  We have little history on African Americans in Snohomish County and are pleased to present this excellent genealogical and biographical research on early County residents who led “normal” but never the less fascinating lives.  This story was written by Margaret Summitt, also of the Sno-Isle Genealogical Society.
