Dear NEPGS Members and Friends,
As our year-long 25th Anniversary celebration continues, one phrase keeps coming to mind, “You’ve come a long way baby!” I think it is very fitting for this celebratory year.
From our humble Back Mountain beginnings to our current home at Hanover Green, the NEPGS continues to fulfill its mission with integrity and grace. We are honored to serve you and have learned so much from you, especially how committed you are to your genealogical quest and family, from long past ancestors to passing your unique legacy down to future generations.
Your dedication to NEPGS has been the lifeblood in maintaining and growing the organization. This year’s highlights are many:
- With close to 10,000 volunteer hours, NEPGS Records Preservation achieved a milestone 200th church completed in the important digitization of the records of the Diocese of Scranton. Patrons are welcome to research these records on a computer at our facility. Equipment upgrades are needed on a yearly basis due to heavy usage.
- The NEPGS is a Family Search Affiliate Library. Affiliate libraries now have access to nearly all the restricted image collections as family history centers! The NEPGS was successful in taking the steps to bring this onsite to our patrons. An upgrade to our internet service was required.
- The NEPGS continues to maintain a wide range of material on various topics related to genealogy and local history, from books, newspapers, magazines, manuscripts, county records, church records and cemetery records to family histories.
Our goal this year is $8,000 to help the NEPGS expand and maintain equipment, and grow its valuable collections. Please consider donating today. The NEPGS an all-volunteer 501c3 non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent of state and federal laws.
