Please access our extensive DAUPHIN COUNTY CEMETERY DATABASE

We hope you enjoy this website and invite you to visit it often.

The last meeting of the Capital Area Genealogical Society was held in November 2014.  This website containing our Dauphin County cemetery database and other useful research documents and genealogic information is being maintained for future use by all.  The Capital Area Genealogical Society was formed in 1982 to foster genealogical research in Dauphin and Cumberland Counties, Pennsylvania.  The objective of the Society was to create and foster an interest in genealogy, encourage the preservation of genealogical materials, and to publish a quarterly journal. Our research and educational outreach related mostly to the counties of Dauphin and Cumberland in Pennsylvania.  The Society's extensive quarterly journal "Keystone Seekers" was published from 1983 through 2004.  A library of more than 400 books and items of family history and gravesite information was accumulated, and in 2014 it was donated to the Paxtang Historical Society and is now permanently stored at the Paxton Presbyterian Church in Paxtang.  In addition to monthly meetings with guest speakers, various activities of a historical and genealogical nature were conducted, such as field trips to other cities, annual events at the PA State Museum, and participating in cemetery tours.  We are sad that the Society no longer meets or publishes a journal, but the CAGS library still exits and this website is still provided to the public.  We hope you find them useful.
