Submissions for Pioneer Families of the Town of Greece, Volume 2, which will be published in the fall of 2022. This second volume will honor families who settled in the area before 1872 but were not included in volume 1.
If you have documentation that proves that your family was living in the Town of Greece before 1872, you can apply for a PIONEER CERTIFICATE to be issued by the Greece Historical Society. The certificate will be issued to you with your family name, a GHS bicentennial logo, an embossed seal, and an engraved cover. Additional copies will be available for purchase.
If yours is one of the featured families in the Pioneers of the Town of Greece book, you will automatically receive a certificate for that family and do not have to supply this paperwork. If you have another family who was in Greece before 1872, you will have to submit an application and pedigree chart for that surname.
