Message from our President
Welcome to the Toledo Polish Genealogical Society website. If you have visited our website before, you will notice we have expanded and have added some Toledo Polish Catholic Church histories with more to come. This past year we were out in the community by taking a Field Trip to Calvary Cemetery, participating in the Polish Festival (Lagrange St.), and selling Elder-Beerman booklets for and during their Community Days sale.
The 2014 calendar is now posted to the web site for you to review or print (using the print icon in the upper right corner of the page). There is sure to be at least one meeting/event that interests you and our hope is that you will join us for a monthly meeting. You can also join or renew with TPGS by clicking on the MEMBERSHIP tab above.
Our Society started with a few energetic people back in 2002. We have continued to grow and outgrew the space we had at St. Hedwig School and moved to a larger one at St. Michael School this past year. We have an excellent research library and have been able to find a lot of our elusive Ancestors. We have also been successful with our Brickwall Projects, which has been a big hit with the members. Come, join us and we can hopefully help you find yours.
Thank you for visiting our website.
