HSP holds a variety of events throughout the year, including genealogy workshops, lectures and panel discussions, tours, and teacher workshops. Events are held at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania at 1300 Locust Street in Philadelphia unless noted otherwise.
On the third Wednesday of every month at 1:00, 3:00, and 5:00 p.m., professional genealogists from the Greater Philadelphia Area Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) will be available to help take your family history research to the next level. These one-on-one consultations are designed for beginner and experienced genealogists alike.
Join HSP's Young Friends at Goose Island's Philly Brewhouse for beer, small plates, and food for thought.
Father Judge High School in Philadelphia suffered more fatalities in the Vietnam War than any other Catholic high school in America. Join us for a screening of a new, feature-length documentary film recounting the lives, military service, and deaths of the students who perished during the war and the lingering impact those losses still have on the community.
Join us for a week-long genealogy course that provides a complete "how to" training on using HSP's archives to explore your family history. From learning about the types of records available to how to locate them, you'll walk away from Researching Family in Pennsylvania with a variety of important genealogical research skills.
