Welcome To The PGS Website

It is our intention to provide a place where a variety of genealogy-related information and tools can be shared with family researchers.

Our society organized in 1971 and draws its name from the Pioneer Woman Statue erected in Ponca City in 1930.  This statue celebrates the noble spirit of determination displayed by the women who settled this region.  We seek to honor the determination of all of the pioneers and their descendants, along with the Native American cultures that were early inhabitants, who continue to be a major element today.  Our focus is on Kay County but we also include limited information related to the surrounding counties of Osage, Pawnee, Noble and Grant, Also Sumner and Cowley counties in Kansas.

Our monthly meetings are open to the public and held at the Ponca City Library.  We also answer queries, publish a quarterly newsletter, compile local genealogical records, and provide a mentoring program for genealogy assistance in cooperation with the library.
