Maryland Genealogy Resources

My husband has several lines which I’ve researched in Maryland, but I’ve only just noticed that I’ve never compiled a list of local resources.

I’ll begin with one of my favorites – the Maryland Calendar of Wills, many of which are digitized and online.

Volumes 1-6 are links to HathiTrust. Volumes 7 & 8 link to FamilySearch; you might need to log into your account to view these. Volumes 9-12 were published much later and are still under copyright.
