(pronounced Vi ta me)

The Polish Genealogical Society of Minnesota (PGS-MN) assists Polish-Americans with roots in Minnesota to explore the great and growing hobby of genealogy, providing people and resources to help you search for those connections – here and in Poland.

Please explore our website.  You will find information on upcoming meetings, special events, membership information, back issues of our newsletter containing local research information, and links to other Polish genealogical resources. Please enjoy, and check out the other pages on our updated website!


Tell PGSMN about your research or other relevant Polish genealogical information – articles are desired for the PGS-MN Newsletter 


Next Newsletter deadline is 12/15/2017 – tell us your story. 


Genealogy of Poles Foundation has launched the English version of the Genealogy of Poles (10 volumes in print) – check out the PGS-MN Research page for “Polish-base websites”
