The PHGS (formerly the Enchanted Mountains Genealogical Society) is an excellent source for those seeking genealogical data in Western New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania.  Their mission is to make as many records available as possible for free. Their society also strives to educate others, while making the field of genealogy fun and exciting to young and old. The PHGS and the NYCATTAR enjoy a great working relationship with common genealogical goals.  We at NYCATTAR highly recommend you visit the PHGS web page at Contact them by email at
