We hope our new website will enhance your user experience now and in the future. Since 1974, WPGS has been dedicated to the study and preservation of family history in the 26 counties of Western Pennsylvania. We aim to provide information, connections and resources to enable your family history research. If you wish to learn more, we have prepared a two-page history of our organization
. Also from 1974, our ABC's of Genealogy Research
In particular, we have been asking ourselves how to better serve and provide value to each and every member. One way we intend to do that is by expanding the content available on our website.
As we continue to migrate over all of the old files, some with updated behind-the-scenes coding, we anticipate what lies ahead. The plan is to have an evolving, expanding site. Please check back often!
Where is the data?
We are actively working on reformatting the back Quarterly issues for inclusion in the members-only area. Some other data sets (Member Ancestor Charts, etc.) require new customized search coding, and that is underway as well. Announcements will be sent out when each phase is complete.
