Genealogy Resources by County or City Name

Many genealogical materials in Special Collections include records from individual Maryland counties and towns. To elaborate, indexes of wills are listed by county or city, as are many court records, land records, census indexes, and vital records such as registers of births and deaths.

To find genealogical materials by county or city in the catalog, search by subject and combine the county or city name (followed by Md.) with the title of the record or document type you are looking for. For more concrete examples, look at the Library of Congress subject headings listed below.
