Special Events

Lecture Series:

Who: Todd Wilson, P.E. presents "Pittsburgh's Bridges"
When: Thursday, March 3 at 7:30pm-8:30pm
Where: Cohon University Center, McConomy Auditorium

Perhaps no other city in the United States is as well known for its collection of bridges as Pittsburgh. While some cities have signature bridges - Brooklyn Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge - Pittsburgh has so many notable bridges that it is not defined by a single bridge, but by its diverse collection, earning it the title "City of Bridges."

R.S.V.P. by phone or email. Members may register online.

Special Interest Groups:

Genealogy: Find Your Roots by Unearthing Your Family's Past

As Pearl S. Buck once mused, “If you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday.” Let’s get together & help each other make that happen! We are attempting to create a special interest group in the area of genealogy. We propose to meet monthly for a couple of hours in the Pennsylvania Department on the 3rd Floor of the Carnegie Library Main Branch on Forbes Avenue, Oakland. They have a great staff there that are always available to answer questions, provide genealogical research guidance, and assist in finding materials. It’s the closest thing to a real life “time tunnel” that we have in the Pittsburgh area, & you’ll also get a history lesson along the way. You should come up with a slew of amazing discoveries & may unravel some confounding mysteries, as well. To sign up, please send an email to Bob Brown at
