About Our Logo







The PGFSO logo (shown above) was created by Paul Burkholder, Markham, and depicts the early migrations of our ancestors from Pennsylvania to Upper Canada in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s. The Pennsylvania German woman and her child, on a horse, led by her husband, with the Conestoga wagon and a cow and calf bringing up the rear, is typical of the mode of travel over 800 kilometers, through forests, swamps, mountains and rivers. The Logo was approved at the Society’s Annual Meeting, 1970.
