By purchasing a membership to PGSNYS you will receive our Society’s newsletter, Searchers, three times a year as well as an information packet to help you get started with your genealogy research. Your membership dollars also help support our mission to promote the study of Polish genealogy in the Western New York and Southern Ontario areas and beyond, by providing assistance to members, and preserving and sharing resources of historical significance to Polish family research in New York State.

As an added value for our members, we have recently debuted our new Members-Only pages, offering exclusive access to on-demand viewing of our monthly presentations, the most recent issues of Searchers, and the lists of surnames being researched by our members. Members will receive a password for this page via email. Please do not share this password.
