First Wednesdays Coffee
Some of our summer research fellows taking a break from their work.

Take a break from your research and mingle with our staff and research fellows over a free coffee and baked goods at our First Wednesdays Coffee!  On the first Wednesday of every month, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania hosts a coffee hour from 3-4 pm in our recently renovated Lobby for researchers and members.  A quick break, good company, and a bit of caffeine will do wonders for your research!

Don't forget to tune in! The Genealogy Roadshow: Historical Society of Pennsylvania episode premiers February 17 at 8 p.m. on PBS.

Genealogy Roadshow visits HSP during Season 2 and discovers fascinating Philadelphia family history. One woman’s ancestor may have sparked historic labor laws; a pastor may have an outlaw in her family tree; a woman learns about slave genealogy and – with the help of DNA testing – gets the answer she has waited for; and another woman learns her ancestor may have helped others escape the Holocaust.
