Upcoming Events


PGS classes and interest groups held at the Largo Public Library have been cancelled until further notice.

We have taken this precaution with the well-being of our members, patrons, and friends in mind.

HOWEVER, WE ARE OFFERING SOME EVENTS SUCH AS SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS AND MONTHLY PROGRAMS AS LIVE "MEETINGS."

This is a rapidly changing situation and we are learning as we go, so be patient. We will reach out to you using our website, this Blog, and our weekly emails to give you information on the events we are offering and the venues we will use.

Our goal is to reach out to our members and friends to provide some useful information, research assistance, and perhaps even some fun during this period of uncertainty and stress.

Who Were the Passengers of the Mayflower? – We’ve all heard the story of the Mayflower and the founding of Plymouth Colony in 1620 but who were these intrepid souls, what did they believe, why did they come to New England, and who left descendants? This presentation explores these topics and provides information on resources available for learning more about the Pilgrims.

“Meet the Pilgrims!” --- You know them as monuments and myths, but in this session, we will get to know the Pilgrims as people! Understand their family ties, their jobs, their hopes, and their failures. Learn how our Pilgrim ancestors made gut-wrenching decisions while fleeing from England to Holland and finally to the New World where they survived to help found a new nation!
