PAL-AM Conference, 2-4 June 2011

NGS subscribing organizations Palatines to America (PAL-AM) and the Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society (WPGS) want to remind you of the 2-4 June 2011 National conference being held in Pittsburgh PA.


Palatines to America (PAL-AM) is a German genealogy society dedi-cated to the study of an-cestors from all German speaking lands. The society takes its name from the fact that some of the earliest German- speaking immigrants to the American colonies came from a region in present-day Germany known as the Palatinate and were called Palatines.


The Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society is a non-profit organization of amateur and professional genealogists and historians who are dedicated to the study of the preservation of local and family history. The geographic area encompassed by the society includes the 26
counties west of Centre County. Any WPGS member who can validate an ancestor who lived in any of the twenty-six counties prior to December 31, 1810, can be accepted into the First Families of Western Pennsylvania.

Check the conference brochure for further details.
