The original index to the Commemorative Biographical Encyclopedia of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania is presented here. You can use this index to find the original page number where a biographical sketch was found.

Over 2000 names are presented here. If you first discover a name through this index, you can view the full biographical sketch by going to the Sketches section of the Encyclopedia. The sketches are presented there in alphabetical order. If you find a name in the original index and can't find the biographical sketch, it means that it hasn't been transcribed yet.

Many of the sketches are also grouped by location in the county. The table below shows the townships with the corresponding page numbers of the biographical sketches. I have found a number of connections by reading all of the sketches in an area where my ancestors lived.
