Anne Arundel County, established 1650, county seat Annapolis.

News from the County:

Anne Arundel County has been very proactive with historical research in general. While a full list of cemeteries is held by the county’s Planning & Zoning Cultural Resources staff, the most comprehensive records, including inscriptions and more detailed records, are kept by the Anne Arundel Genealogical Society at its Kuethe Library.

The Genealogical Society works closely with the county to share information.  When possible, genealogical information has been included. The county has what are believed to be the oldest tombstones in Maryland (1665). The county contains over 500 known burial sites, including military and institutional cemeteries. Several publications contain inscriptions gathered during the history of the Society.

Article 17, section 501-504 is the primary regulatory tool that authorizes Anne Arundel County’s cultural resources staff to review site development activities for potential adverse effects on archaeological sites, historic structures, cemeteries, and scenic and historic roads. The program also reviews demolition permits, telecommunication towers, and State community development block grants projects.
