HISTORY

The Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine (PGM) – called Publications of the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania from 1895 until 1947 – was, until 2015, the third oldest continuing genealogical publication in the country. The publication has been on hiatus since 2015.

During its years of publication as the Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine, the editors and authors of PGM were among the nation’s preeminent genealogists, and included seven of the thirty National 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.  Read more about the History of PGM.

These scholars and countless others combined to bring a vast collection of indexed records, abstracted Pennsylvania source material, compiled genealogies, research methodology, and bibliography to Pennsylvania researchers for 120 years through publication in PGM. Searching PGM through our full-text search 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.
