The Prince George’s County Genealogical Society, founded in 1969, operates a comprehensive genealogical research center. The primary focus of the collection is Maryland and its counties – especially Prince George’s County. The full scope, however, is nationwide in many respects, with heavy emphasis on Eastern states, migration routes and other specific topical interests.
The library offers 5,500 volumes, periodicals, family group sheets, Bible records and microforms. Housed in a 1961 Levitt-built ranch house, the library is open to the public and is handicapped accessible.
Admission to the library is free. Visit the organization's website.
