This website is dedicated to those of German ancestry. Some are recent arrivals, but for the most part, these pages contain information about our ancestors that arrived in America many years ago and settled in Maryland.
The site is divided into several sections. The Biography section contains many persons that have paved the way for life as we live today. Some made very important contributions to Maryland and to the United States. I am always looking for additional profiles.
Every story is important. Whether your ancestors were inventors, manufacturers, brewers or a stay at home Mom, they all contributed. Their every step paved the way.
Gift from the Archives
MAGS will periodically display images of interest, including postcards, letterhead, and other historical documents discovered at the National Archives and other locations. Check back frequently to see what's new. In addition, members have access to an image gallery and library of images to browse.
