Abstract: Let $ G = (\prod\nolimits_{i \in I}^\ast {{A_i}{)_H}} $ be the generalized free product of the groups $ {A_i}$ amalgamating the subgroup H. We show that if G is residually finite and the groups $ {A_i}$ have compatible H-filters then the Frattini subgroup $ \Phi (G)$ is contained in the maximal G-normal subgroup in H. If the groups $ {A_i}$ are free and H is finitely generated of infinite index in one $ {A_i}$ then $ \Phi (G) = 1$. We also show that if H is simple then $ \Phi (G) = 1$ or $ {H^G}$.
