The Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania is Moving

The following message was sent by The Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania:

For quite some time, the Officers and Board of The Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania have envisioned moving to an office with more space. A suburban setting with train and bus access and ample parking for those who would drive.

As luck would have it, we have been propelled into living our dream. A few weeks ago we were notified that the building we have been in for the past several years, 2207 Chestnut Street, has been sold and will be demolished. All tenants need to vacate by September 14th, 2016. That has stimulated a flurry of excited activity – considering and looking at a variety of possibilities while adhering to the mandate of our charter, which is, that we remain within the bounds of Philadelphia. We are pleased to announce that we have secured a suite of offices at 2100 Byberry Road in Northeast Philadelphia.

While we are in the midst of moving we will be continuing business as usual. As you may expect, there may be delays in the next few weeks in responding to your e-mails and phone calls, but we will reply and continue to answer your questions and provide information on resources helpful to your research.

Once established we look forward to and welcome your visit. We are excited to say the new offices provide room for additional research resources on site, in addition to a meeting room. Keep an eye out for notice of our new office hours. Our website, phone number and email addresses will remain the same.

New mailing address…

I have the opposite reaction. Their move is a guarantee that I will never be able to visit. I can’t drive very far, and live in center city edge. I’d rather deal with parking then deal with i95 any day.

Wonderful news. To have the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania up here in Somerton not that far from the old Byberry Meeting House. How wonderful. Just to think on a matter of minutes from my home to have access to the wonderful services of the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania.
