About our upcoming annual volumes (click)

Founded in 1891, the Pennsylvania German Society is a nonprofit, educational organization devoted to the study of the Pennsylvania German people and their 325+ year history in America. For anyone interested in helping to preserve, advance, and disseminate knowledge of the culture of the Pennsylvania Germans, often known as "The Pennsylvania Dutch," no investment can pay better dividends than membership in The Pennsylvania German Society.

Building with strength upon a firm foundation that spans more than a century, The Pennsylvania German Society promotes scholarly research, publishes, and offers meetings and educational programs to its members and to the general public.
