Researching Historic Houses

A guide to the process and resources for researching historic properties in Maryland.

Where to start?

There are many different sources of information when researching a property, sometimes the amount of information can be overwhelming. A great first step in researching your house is to create a chain of title, which is essentially a consolidated record of important information obtained from the deeds. These documents contain important information such as the names of the owners, when the property was transferred, and other helpful facts. The chain of title is also a great resource to have when searching other sources of information. See the Land and Property Records tab to learn how to create this document.
