A Treasure Trove of Maryland History Moves Online

Marylanders and historians worldwide can now access and text search 100 years of the Maryland Historical Magazine, the most definitive journal on Maryland history, directly from their computer screens for free, thanks to a joint project of the Maryland Historical Society and the Maryland State Archives.

Starting June 1, 2010, all issues of Maryland Historical Magazine published between 1906 and 2005 will be available, for free online search and retrieval at http://mdhs.mdsa.net/mhm/index.cfm. These issues contain an enormous wealth of well-documented, peer-reviewed research covering subjects with far-ranging popular and scholarly appeal, says Patricia Dockman Anderson, the journal’s editor. They offer valuable insights and highlight important details concerning the people and events that have shaped Maryland history.  The Friends of the Press of the Maryland Historical Society funded the state-of-the-art effort to digitize the 400 back issues of Maryland Historical Magazine and render them in a text-searchable format.

Visit our website, and click “Search 100 years of the “Maryland Historical Magazine Online” at the top of the homepage. Maryland Historical Society members can also access digital versions of more recent issues of the journal (volumes 101 to 104, published between 2006 and 2009) through the member login page To learn more about becoming a member of the Maryland Historical Society, or for answers to questions on accessing the member’s login page, contact membership_dept@mdhs.org.

    Good Morning!
    At the request of my family, I am researching an early Maryland family. In particular, I would like to access Vol. 9 of the Maryland Historical Magazine. Following your directions does not permit me to do so. Your assistance would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you, William Pooler
