Polish Genealogical Society of New York State

PO Box 984
Cheektowaga, NY 14225

Phone: (716) 674-3153

Description of Library: Founded and located here in Western New York, we have members from many other states and Canadian provinces.  Additionally, the Polish Genealogical Society of New York State proudly supports anyone who finds us and has a specific Polish genealogy inquiry pertaining to Buffalo, Western New York counties, and New York State.  Members respond to requests for research assistance from anyone, whether they are true members or not!   Many of those who inquire with an out-of-area letter or are a website user become members.  The “Buffalo connection” for those with Polish heritage is noteworthy. We also have many opportunities each year to take a Polish Genealogy show "on the road" and we have an information table and helpful support staff at many local cultural and social events.  Our society's monthly meetings are open to everyone during which we have guest speakers and research nights on a rotating basis. Occasionally, someone may contact us when they find items relevant to local Polish heritage and history, at garage sales or discovered when selling a family home.  Members have found marriage licenses, naturalization papers, pictures, church jubilee books, or something such as funeral prayer cards. We encourage sharing the items with the Society for review, and we index the materials for its potentially useful information. Among our external activities, we sponsor an annual Genealogy Fair each September held at St. Gabriel’s church in Elma, now nine years running.  We participate in the annual summer Polish Festival at Cheektowaga Town Park, and have a presence at the monthly Polish Happy Hours. We will eagerly send a representative to be a Guest Speaker at other genealogy and cultural or history society meetings.  These events spark interest and generate new members and project volunteers. Our Society maintains a website, www.pgsnys.org.  As name lists, surname indices, or any other relevant name indices become ready for the website, we continuously add these resources to the website for anyone to search. The Polish Genealogical Society of New York State (PGSNYS) was founded in September 1988 by (the late) Michael Drabik to help people discover their Polish family heritage and ancestors. We promote the study of Polish genealogy in the Western New York and Southern Ontario, Canada, areas and beyond. The Society became incorporated as a not-for-profit in New York State on May 11, 2015 as a 501(c)(3) Federal tax exempt organization. Society holds monthly business meetings, presentations and small social activities each month. We participate in special events and provide guest speakers at alternate event locations as requested. Our society has about 225 members, drawn from within and beyond the Buffalo and Western New York area. The Society publishes its newsletter, "Searchers", three times per year. "Searchers" contains information about the Society and original articles written or submitted by members relating to genealogy and Polish history.  All efforts support work to create our database of unique local name indices, to grow the searchable name database that is so vital to local and regional genealogical research. Projects we manage continue, we are using volunteers to create surname lists for cemetery records, and birth, marriage and death records at the historically Polish churches in the Buffalo area.  Another historic newspaper, Polak w Ameryce, will be the next project for our efforts. All of our activities and projects supported by our members serve the following purposes: •          to provide a Society for persons interested in Polish genealogy, with a primary focus on families with a New York State connection; •          to encourage and promote interest in Polish genealogical research, history, and culture; •          to provide educational programs and publications to foster effective genealogical research skills; •          to provide education on the history and culture of Poland and Poles in America; •          to provide assistance to persons researching their specific family history; •          to collect, preserve, and share Polish and related genealogical and historical records and materials; especially for Western NY’s Polonia communities; •          to collaborate with other Polish community organizations in projects and activities that promote interest in Polish genealogical research, history, and culture.

Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site Foundation

641 Delaware Avenue
Buffalo, NY 14202

Phone: (716) 884-0095

Description of Library: The TR Inaugural Site Foundation's historic collection is comprised of approximately 5300 artifacts that help tell the story of Buffalo's 1901 Pan-American Exposition, President McKinley's tragic assassination and Theodore Roosevelt's presidency, including his inauguration in the home of Buffalo resident Ansley Wilcox. About 20% of the collection is used to furnish the museum's restored rooms. When not on exhibit, artifacts are housed in dedicated on-site collections areas and stored according to professionally accepted standards. Like the rest of the museum. the purpose built collections storage space is climate controlled and protected by a (water based) wet-pipe fire suppression system linked to both heat and smoke detectors. Approx. 95% of the collection is cataloged in PastPerfect 5.0. The collection recalls a turning point in history and holds great importance for not only the local community, but also for a national/international audience. TR's 1901 inauguration, which took place in the aftermath of tragedy, demonstrates the resilience of the American nation and its constitutional democracy. The simple ceremony reminded the country and the world that a peaceful transition of power was possible, even in the aftermath of violence. Roosevelt went on to become what historians have called the first modern US President.
