Summary:

Founded in 1892 as a non-profit organization, the Genealogical Society of  Pennsylvania (GSP) was among the first in the United States to recognize the value of collecting and preserving the vital and personal records of those ancestors whose lives now comprise our American history.  Our mission is to provide leadership and support in promoting genealogy through education, preservation, and access to Pennsylvania-related genealogical information.

For anyone who may be interested in researching their WWI ancestor further, please feel free to contact us
