Lincoln Highway History
Cruising the Lincoln Highway we’ll explore some little known York County historical resources for research in the early 20th century. Established in 1913, the Lincoln Highway was the first coast to coast Main Street from New York City to San Francisco. Our speaker, Tom Davidson, established the Lincoln Highway Legacy in 2020 to help promote and preserve our too quickly vanishing Lincoln Highway heritage across York County, PA. Join us the first Thursday in March at 7:00pm via Zoom to hear more on life in the fast lane.
The York County Writers’ Roundtable networks writers and researchers of York County and regional history. The group meets on the first Thursday of every quarter at 7:00 p.m. at the Historical Society Museum, Library & Archives a 250 E. Market St.  This event is free and open to the public.  Hope to see you there!

What Does The Future Hold for Our Past?
A new State Archives building is under construction and, with it, the promise of state of the art storage and access to historical materials. Hear about how the Archives is planning for future, what you can expect to find when the new building opens—and what you won’t find there, and learn about new initiatives that will make historical records even more accessible in the future.
David Carmicheal is the State Archivist of Pennsylvania. He is a Distinguished Fellow of the Society of American Archivists, and one of his books, Organizing Archival Records, has provided practical guidance to small, volunteer-led archives for over 25 years and is now in its fourth edition.
Meetings are FREE and open to the public.

South Central Pennsylvania Genealogical Society, Inc. (SCPGS) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization of genealogists.  Their primary geographic area of interest and coverage is Pennsylvania’s York and Adams Counties.
