Who Are We?

The Prince Edward Island Genealogical Society was founded in 1976 to serve the genealogical community, and to further genealogical research in P.E.I. Four meetings yearly are held, and a large, informative newsletter is published quarterly, in February, April, September, and November. The society has published transcripts of P.E.I. cemetery information, and books on English, Irish and Scottish emigrants to the Island. The 1881, 1891 and 1901 censuses are available in both disk and paper form. We are working on a number of other projects to aid you in your research.

PEIGS is a volunteer Society and their transcriptions and publications have been produced through years of volunteer efforts to assist others. Efforts will continue to provide you with information which will be of help to your continuing research. Please do check out our new CMNI (Computerized Master Name Index) page, click on Search For Records. It is an excellent on-line searchable finding aide covering many PEI documents. We hope that you will enjoy our new site, and find it a help in your PEI research.
