An ongoing project of the PGSNYS is the collection of funeral prayer cards. These cards are indexed by surname and the database contains decedents’ relevant information. Both Polish & non-Polish surnamed persons’ cards are accepted. You can search the available database index online at the “” website, at monthly meetings and community Polish and genealogical events. A copy of a prayer card is available upon request.
