The Capital Area Genealogical Society was
formed in 1982 to foster genealogical research in Dauphin and Cumberland
Counties, Pennsylvania. The objectives of the Society were to create
and to foster an interest in genealogy, encourage the preservation of
genealogical materials, and to publish a quarterly journal whose
information relates 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 items of family history and gravesite information was accumulated, and
in 2014 it was donated to the Paxtang Historical Society and is currently
stored at the Paxton Presbyterian Church in Paxtang. In addition to
monthly meetings with guest speakers, other activities of a historical and
genealogical nature were conducted, such as field trips to other cities,
events at the State Museum, and participating in annual cemetery tours.
Sadly the last meeting of the Society was held in November 2014.
This website containing our Dauphin County cemetery database and other
useful research documents and genealogic information will be maintained
for future use by all.
