Many people today are interested in learning more about their past and their ancestors. As a result Genealogy is one of the most common terms in search engines on the World Wide Web. For those who are new to the world of Genealogy, there are many ways one can find information regarding their ancestors. Some of the most common forms of public records used for genealogy are: For Birth Records One of the most confusing things about Maryland birth records is that they're stored in more than one location. Birth records were created post 1925 are available via the Division of Vital Statistics. For Death Records Maryland death records are stored in two different places depending on their age. Records prior to 1955 and all genealogical requests should be directed to the Maryland State Archives. However, those needing official copies of more recent documents (since 1923) should get in touch with the Division of Vital Statistics. For Obituaries Maryland is a beautiful state with stunning coast line and lots of interesting people. If you have been searching high and low for Maryland obituaries, there are several reliable online databases you can search. These databases have been created and maintained by local library systems and by local newspapers, as well as local preservation societies and national genealogical websites dedicated to preserving the past. The first place you can look is at the Maryland State Archives. The Maryland Church Records, Death Records, Deaths & Burials Index has both notices and obits for residents who lived in the state from the 1600's all the way up to the 1900's. Also at the state archives, you can check out the Newspaper Images Online Index, which has substantial information from newspapers all across the state. For a more localized search, check out the Baltimore County USGenWeb site. There is a massive amount of information here, mostly about obits and notices in the Baltimore area.
