Pioneer Genealogical Society

 

Pioneer Genealogical Society was formed in April 1971 and welcomes those interested in discussion and exchange of information about genealogy. Our purpose is to study methods available to members for genealogical research and to develop and maintain ancestral records and family charts. Informative programs, workshops and other events are presented for the genealogist. PGS collects and preserves both genealogical and related historical materials for public use.

These materials are available in the
Genealogy Room of the Ponca City Library
515 East Grand, Ponca City, Oklahoma
