Brick Wall Workshops

Have you hit a "brick wall" in your genealogy research? The staff and volunteers at the National Archives at Seattle are here to help. 

Join us for one of our Brick Wall workshops.  These workshops take place the SECOND Thursday of each month from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. Bring your brick wall research problem and our staff and volunteers will do their best to answer your questions.  These workshops are provided to the public free of charge.  For questions, send us an email at or give us a call at (206) 336-5115.
