Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine

The Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine – called Publications of the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania from 1895 until 1947 – is the third oldest continuing genealogical publication in the country. Its editors and authors are among the nation’s preeminent genealogists, and include seven of the National Genealogical Society’s twenty-five Genealogy Hall of Fame members: Rosalie Fellows Bailey, John Insley Coddington (“dean of American genealogy”), Meredith Bright Colket, Jr., Gilbert Cope (“father of genealogical research in Pennsylvania”) Hannah Benner Roach, Milton Rubincam, and Walter Lee Sheppard, Jr. More than fifteen have been Fellows of the American Society of Genealogists.

 

These scholars and countless others have combined to bring a vast collection of abstracted Pennsylvania source material, compiled genealogies, research methodology, and bibliography to Pennsylvania researchers for more than 115 years. Searching PGM’s database could reveal your ancestors in church, tax, military, orphans’ court, apprentice, administration, immigration or naturalization records, deeds, cemetery inscriptions, newspaper extracts, compiled genealogies, and more.

 

If your Pennsylvania research doesn’t include a thorough review of these thousands of pages, it simply isn’t complete.
