Welcome to the West Florida Genealogical Society!

The West Florida Genealogocial Society (WFGS) is located in historic Pensacola, Florida and has been a vital resource for many people who have researched their ancestors from America's First City and the surrounding areas.

For the June 1 WFGS Meeting:  We will be distributing surveys to guide future presentations and activities of the Society. 
Click HERE to see a preview of the survey and begin thinking about your answers and contributions.

New Resources for Genealogists from the Facebook page:
The Digital Library of Appalachia:  If your research takes you to the Appalachians, there's a digital library with photos, audio recordings, and information.
Genealogy-Specific Search Engines:  The link takes you to an article that links to the search engines and gives a brief tutorial on how to use them.


Wreaths Across America 

On Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 12:00 PM, West Florida Genealogy Society will be helping Barrancas National Cemetery to remember and honor our veterans by laying Remembrance Wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.

Please help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring remembrance wreaths, volunteering on Wreaths Day, or inviting your family and friends to attend with you.
