Curious About Your Family History?
The Anne Arundel Genealogical Society wants to help you discover more about your family history. We invite you to become a member, visit our research center, browse our website, and attend our monthly presentations and special events. Our Historical and Genealogical Research Center at the Kuethe Library in Glen Burnie houses over 4,000 books, many photographs, maps, CDs, and obituary, bible, and church record collections. Because our history is so connected with our neighboring counties and states, we have an extensive collection of material from across Maryland and surrounding states.
Perhaps our most important asset is our staff of experienced genealogists. The people you will meet at the Kuethe Library and at our meetings have a wealth of experience and knowledge that they are always willing to share.
Beginning, intermediate, and experienced family history researchers will find resources both usual and unusual in the Kuethe Library. Our monthly meetings feature presentations by experts on a wide variety of genealogy topics. Visitors are welcome.
Let us know how we can help you with your family and historical research.

Crossing the Pond - Nach Deutschland
Join us at 7:30 pm on Thursday, April 3 at the Severna Park United Methodist Church, 731 Benfield Road, Severna Park, Maryland, to hear Vernon Skinner's presentation on German Research.
Vernon Skinner was born and raised just outside of Baltimore City. His father is descended from the earliest settlers of Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia (Eastern Shore). His mother is a first generation American of German descent. He attended the University of Maryland at College Park, graduating with a B.S. in mathematics and an M.S. in computer science. He speaks German and French.
After retiring from 30 years with IBM, Mr. Skinner continued his love of genealogy, both in Maryland and in Germany. He is the author of numerous articles and over 60 books, primarily abstracts of probate records of the Prerogative Court of Provincial Maryland. He is currently a member of Sons of American Revolution, Upper Shore Genealogical Society, and Maryland Genealogical Society. He is a past president of Maryland Genealogical Society, past director of Genealogical Council of Maryland, and past member of the Search Room Advisory Committee of the Maryland State Archives.
Kuethe Library Catalog Project
The Anne Arundel Genealogical Society together with the Ann Arrundell Historical Society is working on a project to catalog and add the Kuethe Library holdings to the Anne Arundel County Public Library catalog. As of January 2014 there are more than 3,000 Kuethe titles in the public library catalog. This number will continue to increase but we need your help! See our volunteer page for details.
