Maryland Genealogical Society
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.) Through our publications, educational programs, and other outreach, we promote and support genealogical research.
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.
Mission: The objectives of the Maryland Genealogical Society are:
to encourage and instruct members in genealogical research and compilation; to promote adherence to high standards of accuracy and thoroughness in genealogy; to locate, preserve, index, and publish public and private genealogical records and studies; and to cooperate with other organizations throughout the State of Maryland and elsewhere in the promotion of genealogical programs.
