NEPA Genealogical Society building

The Premier Genealogical Society in NEPA

The Northeast Pennsylvania Genealogical Society strives to preserve resource materials of genealogical and historical significance pertaining to ancestors and families throughout Northeast Pennsylvania.

We are open to NEPGS members for access to our digital archives on our in-house network. The Teresa M. McAndrew Memorial Catholic Record Collection is unique to NEPGS.  NEPGS is a FamilySearch Affiliate Library. We provide assistance in methods of seeking and finding family history data as well as encourage and promote the accurate recording of genealogical information.  

Through these efforts, our society members, patrons and generations of families will be instilled with a greater understanding and appreciation of their heritage. 

Please Note: NEPGS Digital Collections are NOT VIEWABLE ONLINE.

Members may reserve an in-person appointment to visit our library by email to Non-Members and members alike may order paid Research Services by our professional staff.
