Welcome to Allegany County, Maryland Genealogy Trails!

This county is in need of a dedicated host!


Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers

This is a continuation of our original Illinois Genealogy Trails project and we are excited about this opportunity to expand into other states. We welcome your feedback and comments, and of course, your data contributions.

WANT TO HELP?
We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as it can be. If you are interested in joining our group, and becoming a Host for any of Florida's counties, view our
Volunteer Page for further information and then contact Kim

Check your attics!
Dust off your family scrapbooks!
We're looking for DATA for this site!!!


If you are interested in adding your families' information this website, EMAIL US . We'll be happy to help your families' obituaries, news items and other historical data find a home here at Florida Genealogy Trails, where it will remain free for all to view.


 I REGRET THAT I AM UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.
ALL DATA IS ADDED TO THE SITE AS I COME ACROSS IT, SO IF IT IS NOT HERE YET, PLEASE KEEP CHECKING BACK.


Don't want to host a site but still want to help?

Transcription Team!

The western part of Maryland (including the present Allegany County) was incorporated into Prince George's County in 1696. This county included six current counties, and by repeated splitting, new ones were generated: Frederick from Prince George's in 1748; and Montgomery and Washington from Frederick in 1776.

Allegany County was formed in 1789 by the splitting of Washington County. At the time it was the westernmost county in Maryland, but a later (1872) split produced Garrett County, the current westernmost county.

The county seat is Cumberland. The name Allegany comes from a local Native American word for the Potomac River, oolikhanna, which means "beautiful stream."
