To promote interest in and study of American history through genealogical research; to preserve the heritage of the American Pomeroys and their allied families by conducting research, collaborating with other researchers, and providing access to the results.
We are committed to assisting genealogists researching the descendants of Eltweed Pomeroy and allied Pomeroys, and acting as a clearinghouse for their research.
The American Pomeroy Historic Genealogical Association (APHGA) was founded by Bill Pomeroy of Syracuse, NY, in order to provide an organization to communicate and collaborate family information regarding the descendants of Eltweed Pomeroy. Bill's dream is to publish an update of the Albert A. Pomeroy genealogy books, The History and Genealogy of the Pomeroy Family, Vols. I-III, published in 1912 and 1922.
Bill Pomeroy, an Eltweed descendant through Medad, is the founder of CXtec in Syracuse, NY.
Bill grew up in a family full of home-grown genealogists. Bill’s initial interest in his Pomeroy genealogy has turned into a labor of love, for both genealogy and local history.
Mary Ann Pomeroy Hagen, also an Eltweed descendant through Medad, is from a politically active, human services oriented Pomeroy family. After a career in education and human services, she retired in 2001 to volunteer with local and global humanitarian efforts and continue her interest in her family genealogy. She lives in Seattle, Washington. Like Bill, she has had a dream to update the Albert A. Pomeroy books for several years.
The APHGA assists local history projects, genealogical research and is coordinating the A. A. Pomeroy Book Update Project and the Pomeroy Anvil Trail.
Spearheading these projects is Susan Hughes, the Chief Administrator of the APHGA.
