About Us

For over 25 years, the Polish Genealogical Society of Minnesota (PGS-MN) has been assisting Polish-Americans explore their genealogy roots in Minnesota. Whether your relatives immigrated to the Iron Range, the north shore, the farm communities of the west, the southern Mississippi river bluff country, or the urban areas of Minneapolis and St. Paul, we have people and resources to help you search for those connections – here and in Poland.

Our society assists those interested in exploring their Polish ancestry, culture, language and history. We offer research and library resources as well as meetings and events at the Minnesota Genealogy Center in Mendota Heights.
