Maryland Genealogy & LDS Family History Centers
Maryland is home to important politicians and military figures who may be interested in tracing their family trees. The best source for genealogy information in this bustling state is a Maryland family history center, one of the branches of the extensive Family History library in Salt Lake City. These centers are virtually overflowing with resources of all kinds, from old fashioned microfilm and microfiche to the latest in computer documentation. In addition, family history centers offer some of the largest selection of print materials in the country. The centers are operated by the Maryland LDS Churches and are open to the general public free of charge.

Maryland Genealogy Resources
Maryland's official status as a US colony goes back to 1632 when King Charles I dispensed a grant to Cecilius Calvert, the second Lord Baltimore, whose father died before his own royal charter application could be fulfilled. It was named for Charles' queen consort, Henrietta Maria. This land-grant state was admitted into statehood in 1788. Early settlers were mostly Protestants from England. Later, Baltimore served as a major immigration port, especially between the years of 1897 and 1948 (but you can find early customs lists and passenger list abstracts starting in 1820). You'll find statewide birth and death records starting in 1898, and marriages beginning in 1951. The Maryland State Archives holds more than 400,000 digitized documents including city directories, a Colonial probate index, military, and provincial court and land records, and special collections containing data from slave schedules, jail, and property inventories, prisoner lists, and much more to help you navigate the course to your "Old Line" state roots.
