The Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania (GSP) is a non-profit educational institution located at 2100 Byberry Road, Suite 111, Philadelphia  Pennsylvania  19116.   Founded in 1892,  GSP is one of the oldest genealogical societies in the United States.


GSP recently rebuilt our website on a new server.  Explore the site and look for collections as we are still adding collections.  Some larger collections and those with more complicated databases (our webinars, the Public Ledger Death Index,  the Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine, and others) are still in process. 

Our mission is to provide leadership and support in promoting genealogy through education, preservation, and access to Pennsylvania-related genealogical information.

Founded in 1892 as a non-profit organization, the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania (GSP) was among the first in the United States to recognize the value of collecting and preserving the vital and personal records of those ancestors whose lives now comprise our American History.

GSP is committed to preserving and publishing previously unpublished primary sources. The continuing dedication to this service enables the Society to make an increasingly significant contribution to the cultural life of our city, state, and country.
