The Maryland State Archives will begin in-person appointments again on Monday, May 3, 2021.
Phase One will be rescheduling guests who had appointments set in late 2020, but were cancelled due to spikes in Maryland’s confirmed COVID cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. Phase One will begin on May 3.
Phase Two will open up appointments to the general public and will begin after we have accommodated the guests with cancellations. Please watch our homepage for updates or join our mailing list to receive the latest information on the beginning date for Phase Two, including access to the form to request an appointment.
Phase Three will continue appointments, but also open more widely to accommodate search room open hours for the public.
The timing of the phases will be based on both on the safety of our employees and our guests. Masking requirements, distancing and health protocols will remain in place for appointments.
The Archives has never been closed during the pandemic, and our staff continues to be available to serve you. We encourage you to:
- Place copy orders online, including uncertified vital records copies for reference purposes.
- Contact us for research assistance at email@example.com or 410-260-6487.
- Access digital records from home on our website, including what’s new online, our training videos and research guides providing details on how to find our most searched record types.
