Welcome to Keystone Ancestry

We are here to help you help you discover and document your family’s heritage. Our company is focused on supporting you in your family history journey from helping clients who are just starting the process to clients who need help scaling those brick walls. Our primary focus is on your ancestors who lived in or passed through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania is known as the Keystone State, based on its central location among the original thirteen colonies forming the United States.

Where did they come from? Why did they travel?  Why did they settle or move on?  Were they early immigrants or recent? How did they live and where did they die?  Were they soldiers, coal-miners, shopkeepers, or farmers?  Did they own land or live in a company town?

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines Keystone as

  • A large stone atop an arch that locks the other stones in place
  • Something on which other things depend for support

Here at Keystone Ancestry we want to lend our support to your efforts to discover the stories of your past so you can document them and pass them on to future generations!
