The richness of Pennsylvania history is seasoned uniquely by language contributions of immigrants to America from Wales, Ireland, and Scotland. Thousands of years earlier, the Celts, as the Greeks called them, comprised diverse tribes that spoke related languages across Europe and the British Isles – languages that would become Welsh, Irish, and Scottish. This presentation briefly covers the early history of Celtic languages and concentrates mainly on Pennsylvania’s Celtic language heritage in expressions, names, and place names as derived from Welsh, Irish, and Scottish immigrants.

Charles “Chip” Kauffman is an adjunct faculty member at York College of Pennsylvania where he teaches World Languages. Over many years at several colleges in the region, he has taught Italian, German, Russian and other languages. He is a retired certified U.S. Government linguist and author of various articles on languages and linguistics.
South Central Pennsylvania Genealogical Society, Inc. (SCPGS) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization of genealogists. Their purpose is to encourage and promote an interest in genealogy by collecting and preserving materials related to genealogy, encouraging the compilation and publication of family genealogies and histories, publishing materials of interest and benefit to members, holding meetings for the education of members and the public, and offering financial and volunteer support to the library at the York County History Center.

Monthly meetings are held in the Meeting Hall of the York County History Center, at 250 East Market Street, York, Pennsylvania unless otherwise noted. Meetings are FREE and open to the public.

February 12- Rich Wagner, Brewing in York
Rich Wagner will share information and images about the history of brewing in York from the borough’s earliest breweries to present day.
Rich Wagner has been researching Pennsylvania brewing history since 1980. In 1990 he brewed at Pennsbury Manor using reproductions of seventeenth century equipment. Two years later he worked with a cooper to make his own system and has taken it on the road to demonstrate the brewing process of antiquity at historical sites and festivals.
In 1994 he earned a diploma in brewing technology from the Siebel Institute in Chicago and worked in Philadelphia craft breweries over a seven year period. Since his retirement as a high school science teacher, he has devoted his time to writing and speaking. He has given tours of breweries in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, the Lehigh Valley and South-Central Pennsylvania and published guidebooks to go with each tour.

On Thursday February 17 at 7:00, Dr. Peter Levy will present a webinar entitled “York’s Rosa Parks: Daisy Myers and the Quest for the American Dream.”  Lynda Myers, Daisy’s daughter, will join Dr. Levy in a question and answer session after the program.
This program will be held online through Zoom and streamed live on the York County History Center’s Facebook page.
To register for Zoom, please click here.
To mark the publication by the History Center of a new edition of Daisy Myers’ Sticks ‘n Stones: The Myers Family in Levittown, York College’s Peter Levy will examine the story of York’s own Rosa Parks. Too often overlooked in the history of the struggle for racial equality, Myers’ effort to purchase a suburban home in Levittown, Pennsylvania, reminds us that Jim Crow resided on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line.  Myers’ story also reminds us of the courage and dignity of many northern (and female) freedom fighters, who braved threats to their lives and the lives of their families in pursuit of the American Dream, as well as the legacy of white resistance to residential desegregation.
