Welcome To The CCGS Website!

  The Carroll County Genealogical Society President and Board would like to welcome the many researchers to our website that was created for you, our members and the public in pursuit of genealogical research.  Our informational offerings are rich and we continue to grow our digital content.  As we work to improve the historical records offered at our site we hope that you would join us if you are not a current member.  Enjoy the site, explore and research. Genealogical research is rewarding and we hope that you find your experience with us positive and will return often in your research.      

June Membership Meeting

  At our June membership meeting in accordance with CCGS By-Laws nominations were held for the position of President and Vice President.  There were nominees for each position,  and it is my pleasure to announce that Diane Boettcher was nominated as President and Heather Owings was nominated as Vice President from the floor by Mimi Ashcraft.  Their nominations were seconded from the floor and then unanimously approved by voice vote of all members in attendance. Eileen Mummaugh administered the oath of office to each.  Congratulations to our new President Diane Boettcher and our Vice President Heather Owings.

Maryland Archive Links
Did you know that CCGS via the website provides quick links into the Maryland Archives?  Check the menu bar on the left, under CCGS Collections for the link to the Maryland Archives.  We have recently added a link for Md Death Certificates by counties, 1910-1922.  
Something New
  In CCGS Collections under maps we have scanned and added work by George Horvath to place land patents on maps in the late 1970's and 1980's.  
   New data has been added to the Members Only Section of our website.  It can be found in the 1813 Assessment Records menu selection.  The new data is the 1813 Assessment Records for Baltimore County Election District #7.  District #7 extended from Baltimore County into present day Carroll County.  Residents in this area were bounded by the Patapsco River to the south, Beaver Run to the west moving north towards present day Route 140, then a bit west of Carrollton to the railroad tracks and back into Baltimore County.  The district encompassed areas of Carrollton, Patapsco, and Finksburg as well as Reisterstown and Worthington Valley.  These records are from the Maryland Archives and were transcribed by George Horvath in 1986.
  • April Meeting Notes have been added to the Members Only Section under File Downloads - Board Notes
  • Member Mary Rose Keffer has been appointed as the Cemetery Committee Chair by President Russ Hudson.  Congratulations to Mary Rose and thank you to Carol Wheatley, the outgoing Cemetery Chair who will now focus on her responsibilities as Carrolltonian editor.  Thank you, Carol, for your dual hat service!
  • CCGS will hold their next membership meeting on Monday 20 Jun 2022 at the Non-Profit Center.  Our focus that evening is to accept nominations for the positions of President and Vice President.  Upon receipt of nominations voting will proceed.  This is an open meeting.
