About the Maryland Genealogical Society
In 2009, the Maryland Genealogical Society celebrated 50 years of helping members of the public in their quest to learn more about their family history. (For more information on the history of the Society, click here

The Maryland Genealogical Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit membership organization. We welcome as members anyone interested in genealogy, heraldry, history, or biography. You are cordially invited to become a member
and to participate actively
in the work of the Society.
