Welcome to our organization

The Toledo Polish Genealogical Society is a 501c3 non-profit support organization for genealogists who are researching ancestors in Poland, or Polish-Americans in the Toledo, Ohio area. Our goal is to collect, disseminate and preserve information through education, research and discussions at our meetings. This information can be

used to help our members add to their family trees.


Letter from the President

Dear Members and Guests,


Welcome to the Toledo Polish Genealogical Society website. This is our Tenth Anniversary Year, a year of pride in our accomplishments and of promises for a bright future. The Officers and Board of Directors have planned an exciting year of monthly meetings filled with quality genealogical programming and events permeated with fun and Polish American culture. The TPGS Library, one of our greatest treasures, recently acquired more records of Saint Hedwig and Saint Anthony Parishes, which are being indexed and preserved. The Officers will increase the records available to members this year. In addition to our dues and 50/50 raffles, the Book/Bake/Soup Sale on Saturday, March 17 at Saint Hedwig will benefit the growing library, and the “Who Do You Think You Are Raffle?” in July will increase the funds of our society.


Approximately one-third of the people in Lucas County are Polish Americans. If you haven’t been to a meeting in awhile, please join us for an informative and enthusiastic meeting. If you are new to our website, join TPGS today by clicking on the Membership link. Whether you are from Kuhschwantz or Lagrinka, we welcome you to the Toledo Polish Genealogical Society and a year of celebration.
