Whether you are new to genealogy or a seasoned researcher, find your story at HSP this spring with Family History Days.

On March 18 & 19, HSP is bringing together genealogy and family history professionals from around the world for the mid-Atlantic’s largest genealogy festival, featuring two days of presentations and workshops.

Hosted at HSP's historic library and archive, attendees will have the chance to learn about new techniques and tools, travel behind-the-scenes into HSP's conservation lab and archive, work one-on-one with a research mentor, network with fellow family historians and representatives from genealogy organizations, and more.

For those new to genealogy and family history, members of the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania will be offering a Breakfast for Beginners at 8 a.m. each day. Enjoy a light continental breakfast as you learn the best ways to begin researching your family's history. Breakfast tickets are $25 and available at checkout.


  • Individual days (either March 18 or 19): $75 for HSP & Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania (GSP) members, $100 for nonmembers
  • Both days: $130 for HSP & GSP members, $195 for nonmembers (includes 1-year membership to HSP!)
