Welcome to Baltimore 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

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.

Baltimore County map

The name of the county was derived from the barony of the Proprietor of the Maryland colony, Cæcilius Calvert, 2nd Baron Baltimore, in County Longford, Ireland. The County Seat is Towson.

It should be noted that Baltimore County does not include the City of Baltimore, which was split off as an independent city in 1851.


The origin of Baltimore County is not known, the earliest known recordof the county politically is January 12, 1659, when a writ was issued to its sheriff. Previously, Baltimore Countywas more known as a geographical entity than a political one, with its territorial limits consisting of the presentday Baltimore City, Cecil and Harford Counties, as well as parts of Carroll, Anne Arundel, Frederick, Howard and Kent Counties.

In 1674, a portion of Baltimore County, as well as a portion of Kent County, was split off to form Cecil County.In 1748, a portion of Baltimore County, as well as a portion of Prince George's County, was split off to form FrederickCounty. In 1773, Harford County was split off from Baltimore County. In 1837, a part of Baltimore County was combined with a part of Frederick County to form Carroll County. In 1851 the city of Baltimore was detached from Baltimore County.
