Church Record Sunday: St. Mary's Seminary Maryland

I've talked before about Seminary Libraries on Church Record Sunday. Today's resources is the St. Mary's Seminary & University Associated Archives. You will find that their website specifically addresses genealogical requests and provides answers to how you can use their collection to trace Catholic ancestors.

Resources housed here include Sacramental Records and Registers. Their collection is limited to:

"...parishes within the current boundaries of the Archdiocese of Baltimore (est. 1789), which is comprised of the following counties: Allegany, Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Baltimore City, Carroll, Frederick, Garrett, Harford, Howard, and Washington. Records for parishes that now comprise the Archdiocese of Washington, DC (est. 1939), Diocese of Wilmington, DE(est. 1868), Diocese of Richmond (est. 1820), and Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston (est. 1850) can only be accessed through those respective dioceses."

Check their website for more information about genealogical requests and materials available, including guides.
