- The MDGenWeb Project was established in 1996 by a group of genealogists who shared a desire to create an online center for Maryland family research. Each of our 27 unique and creative web sites - 24 counties, 2 special topics, and the main state site - have been created and are maintained by special group of volunteers . . . The MDGenWeb Project's team of county coordinators. This special group of people hails from all over the United States. They are young and not-so-young, men and women, from different backgrounds and cultures. They are quite a diverse bunch, but they share a love of genealogy and the State of Maryland, a knack for gathering information and creating web pages, and a desire to help others in the quest for their ancestry.
- We invite you to visit each of our 26 county and topical web sites to see for yourself all of the great information and data these volunteers have gathered for you. Among the offerings you’re likely to see here are query boards, listings of local sources for records, county and state histories, online genealogy books, research tips, maps, and links to internet resources. You’ll even find transcribed records online, accessible for free from the comfort of your home. Our state’s Special Projects, such as the Tombstone and Census Projects, assist in the effort to gather these record transcriptions. The USGenWeb Archives Project is the main repository of the data, which is provided by helpful contributors - people just like you!
- You can access each of the sites from our County Selection Table or our Clickable Map County Selector. You’ll find much to interest you and to help you in your research, and you’ll enjoy visiting sites as diverse as the State of Maryland itself. From the mountains of Western Maryland, to the Tidewater area in the south, to the cities of the central and Capital areas, to the Land of Pleasant Living on the Eastern Shore - The MDGenWeb Project has it all!
