Maryland Genealogies, in Two Volumes — 15% OFF

cf3735Maryland Genealogies, a two volume set, contains all the family history articles published in the Maryland Historical Magazine from its inception through 1976. The magazine was produced by the Maryland Historical Society. The families found in these articles “arrived, for the most part, in the early colonial period,” but are not limited to just British families. There are also know German and French families, along with some Jewish families.

“Most of the articles begin with the first member of the family in Maryland and trace descendants in the male line down to the early eighteenth century. “While most of the articles reprinted here are family lineages, tracing all lines of descent in the male line from a common ancestor, there are other types of articles as well. For example, there are Bible records…A few articles discuss in great detail the various theories concerning the origin of the immigrant ancestor…A third type of article deals with families from the same locality who are closely related through a series of marriages.”

According to Robert Barnes, author of the introduction, “since they have been largely inaccessible to the researcher, we have excerpted these articles in entirety and rearranged them in this comprehensive two-volume work, adding an introduction by a noted Maryland genealogist and personal name indexes.”

The consolidated articles–nearly 100 in number–now form a reference work of a type long needed in Maryland genealogy, with the range and scholarly authority demanded by the researcher. Based on the index, the names listed below are just some of the surnames found in the books, with an estimated 14,000 total names listed.
