  • 58 Genealogical Society Collections.


    The Genealogical Society was organized in 1892, as an

    auxiliary to the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, and its

    founders announced the objects of the Society to be: The

    promotion of genealogical research; the collection and pres ervation of registers of births, marriages, and deaths, kept

    by religious societies or individuals, or making transcripts

    thereof; as well as transcripts or abstracts of all kinds of

    official records affording genealogical information.

    That the Genealogical Society has produced results worthy

    of, and justifying its existence, is fully demonstrated by the

    list of its manuscripts given below. These manuscripts form

    the most valuable collection of the kind in the country, and

    they are all housed in the spacious fire-proof rooms of the

    Historical Society of Pennsylvania, where they are daily con

    sulted by genealogical inquirers from near and from far.

    While the material already gathered from fast-perishing records is vast in extent, it is only a small fraction of the like

    material yet to be preserved. To continue the work of rescuing from oblivion such rec

    ords,?now constantly subject to the risk of loss by fire, and

    the tooth of time,?the Genealogical Society asks for the

    assistance of all of the members of the Historical Society.

    Membership in the former Society is restricted to those in

    good standing in the latter Society. The Genealogical Society has no salaried officers. In

    carrying forward its work it is chiefly dependent upon its

    income derived from the dues of its members, who now com

    pose but about one-eighth of the total membership of the

    Historical Society.
