Polish Genealogical Society of Texas

The Polish Genealogical Society of Texas
is a non-profit organization founded in 1982.


The Polish Genealogical Society of Texas is dedicated to dissemination and sharing of information in assisting members research their Polish ancestors. The society also promotes research and publication of the history of Poles in Texas. Through public speaking engagements and civic functions, PGST members educate others on Polish history and culture.


In 1982, at the urging of Brother Christopher Golla, Anna Borski Campo contacted all those she could identify as being interested in researching their Polish ancestry. On October 2, 1982, six persons gathered at her home to share their research efforts. Unknown to them, this informal luncheon signaled the founding of PGST.
Meetings continued in private homes until The Houston Polish Genealogical Society was created on May 5, 1984 and by-laws were adopted. Membership rapidly expanded beyond the Houston area so the name was changed to The Polish Genealogical Society of Texas in September of 1984.
