The Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society (WPGS) is an organization of amateur and professional family historians and genealogists dedicated to the study and preservation of family history, mainly in Western Pennsylvania. Since 1974 WPGS has aimed to provide members with genealogically related information, connections, and resources to enhance your family history and research. The Library is a non-circulating collection of materials, and includes standard reference volumes, indexes on immigration and emigration, military history and genealogy research. There are also several hundred volumes of published family histories, church and cemetery histories, and locality research.

Surrounded by genealogy from a young age, Pamela Israel has long appreciated the richness that learning about your heritage and ancestors can bring. She loves helping others do the same. Pamela teamed up with her brother, a Germanic linguist, to launch Unlock Your History where she focuses on people’s family history and he translates old documents. Pamela is the current president of the Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society. She is a ProGen alum and earned a genealogical certificate from Boston University.
