The Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine (PGM) – called Publications of the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania from 1895 until 1947 – is the third oldest continuing genealogical publication in the country.  The editors and authors of PGM are among the nation’s preeminent genealogists, and include 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 have combined to bring a vast collection of indexed records, abstracted Pennsylvania source material, compiled genealogies, research methodology, and bibliography to Pennsylvania researchers for more than 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.

Note: New publications are on hold until we complete uploading previously published issues and collections to the website
