The Polish Genealogical Society of California, a non-profit organization, was established on July 17, 1989. Our purpose is to promote research of Polish family heritage, to help you research and record your family history, to collect and preserve records of our ancestors, and to preserve historical and biographical material. PGS-CA provides a forum for members to learn how to research their ancestral lines. Our growing Library Collection of research material is available at the Los Angeles Family History Library (LAFHL). Meetings and classes explore Polish history and expand our knowledge of research techniques.


The eNewsletter is published bi-monthly and is a forum for sharing information and exchanging research methods and techniques. Your personal stories are always welcome. Send us items of genealogical, historical, or bio graphical interest.

Surname Database

The Society has compiled a Surname database from the names our members are researching. This data has been distributed to libraries, other genealogical societies, and is available on our Website.
