5 CD: Genealogy and Biography of Leading Families of the City of Baltimore and Baltimore County, Maryland, Containing Portraits of Many Well Known Citizens of the Past and Present
Chapman Publishing Company
2004, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and MAC, 1061 pp, Heritage Books
The compilers of this vast collection of biographical sketches eschewed the dry statistics from "musty records" and personally interviewed Baltimorean men and women who, "by their enterprise and industry, brought the county to a rank second to none among those comprising their great and noble state." Information covers key dates in an individual's life as well as commentary on education, business, religion, military service, and the like, when known. Original full name index. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent.

Charles G. Steffen.
224 pages, illus, maps; Includes bibliographical references (p. [176]-201) and index., paperback, University Press of Kentucky


Reviews
"Charles Steffen has crafted with painstaking care a detailed study of the landholding, slaveholding, and mercantile practices of the economic elite of eighteenth-century Baltimore County. Enlivened throughout by accounts of county political turmoil and by brief sketches of wealthy planters and merchants, From Gentleman to Townsmen is a valuable addition to the literature of both colonial elites and the social history of the Chesapeake."—William and Mary Quarterly

Baltimore County, Maryland Marriage Licenses, 1777-1798, Dawn Beitler Smith


7 Baltimore County, Maryland Marriage Licenses, 1777-1798
Dawn Beitler Smith
(1989), 2007, 5½x8½, paper, 216 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Brides' and grooms' names are listed alphabetically in this work, along with the date of issue of the marriage license. This list was compiled from marriage license records at the Maryland State Archives in Annapolis. (Several months are missing from the collection). Each record contained three or four entries: the date that the license was issued, name of the groom, name of the bride, and name of the officiating minister when he reported that marriage took place. In this book the first three entries are shown with an asterisk to indicate that the marriage was reported by the minister. Readers should note that until the establishment of Carroll County in 1837, the eastern part of that county belonged to Baltimore County. Also, note that the marriage records of Baltimore City and Baltimore County remained as one integral set of records until 1851.

Trinity German Lutheran Church Records, 1853-1877: Baltimore, Maryland, Gary B. Ruppert


9 Trinity German Lutheran Church Records, 1853-1877: Baltimore, Maryland
Gary B. Ruppert
2002, 8½x11, paper, index, 344 pp, Heritage Books
Although Trinity Lutheran Church in Baltimore was once one of the largest and most active congregations in the city, sadly after 160 years, the congregation came to an end in the mid 1990s. During those sixteen decades, many thousands of people participated in the church sacraments of baptism, marriage, burial, confirmation and communion. Since civil registration in Baltimore City did not commence until 1875, nineteenth-century church records may be the only source of information about otherwise unrecorded countless lives. This volume contains extractions, transcriptions, and translations of data from baptismal, marriage, burial, confirmation, and communion entries in Trinity's only surviving church register, which dates from 1853 to 1877. It also contains an index to every recorded individual from the register. There are roughly 26,000 entries.

Index to Baptisms, Burials and Confirmations, Second German Evangelical Lutheran Church, Baltimore City, Maryland, 1835-1867, Gary B. Ruppert, M.D


10 Index to Baptisms, Burials and Confirmations, Second German Evangelical Lutheran Church, Baltimore City, Maryland, 1835-1867
Gary B. Ruppert, M.D
2006, 5½x8½, paper, index, 406 pp, Heritage Books
Second German Evangelical Lutheran was one of the earliest German-speaking congregations established in Baltimore, Maryland. Fortunately, the surviving baptismal and burial registers of Second German Lutheran Church are intact from its founding in late 1835 until its closure in late 1867. The original documents are entirely in German. The author has transcribed the German entries as closely as possible from the original within the limits of legibility. The majority of this work is divided into baptisms, burials and confirmations. These three sections are arranged alphabetically by surname. Each baptism entry includes the following information: surname, child’s given name, birth date, baptismal date, father’s given name, father’s place of birth, mother’s surname and given name, mother’s place of birth, surname and given name of witnesses, and comments. Total baptisms from 1837 until 1867 were 3,042 with more than 12,000 names. Each burial entry includes the following information: surname of decedent, given name of decedent, date of death, date of burial, birth date or age, place of birth, survivor(s) and comments. Because survivor information is provided, it is relatively easy to see how the deceased fit into a given family. The total number of burials entered from 1837 to 1867 is 1,046 with roughly 2,500 names. Unfortunately, there is an incomplete record of confirmations, and confirmation data are rather scant. These entries typically include: surname, given name and date of confirmation. The total number of confirmations is 822. An index is provided to all names other than the subject of the event, as subjects are already listed alphabetically by surname. Since there are so many geographic place names extracted from this church register, a place name index is also included.

The Particular Assessment Lists For Baltimore And Carroll Counties, 1798, George J. Horvath, Jr


11 The Particular Assessment Lists For Baltimore And Carroll Counties, 1798
George J. Horvath, Jr
(1986), 2001, 5½x8½, paper, index, 186 pp, Heritage Books
Lists occupants, owners, types & dimensions of buildings, tract names, acreage, number of slaves. Helps replace nonexistent 1800 census of Baltimore County. Includes 1804 tax list for precincts surrounding Baltimore City. Early in July, 1798, Congress passed a law which came to be known as the “window tax.” Commissioners in each state were to divide the states into districts, and collect data on the valuation of lands and dwelling houses and the counting of the slaves. For dwelling houses the commissioners were to specify their situation, their number of stories, the number and dimensions of the windows (hence the nickname), and the materials of which the houses were built. When the commissioners for Maryland had completed their task they had compiled a three part record series. The second part of the list was a “Particular Assessment List” giving dimensions of dwellings, outbuildings, and land as of October 1, 1798. This volume contains the information found in the second part of the tax list, for Baltimore County (exclusive of Baltimore Town), plus the information for the three hundreds in Frederick County that later made up Carroll County. In addition, names from the “precincts” surrounding Baltimore Town were garnered from an 1804 tax list. In some cases when the Particular list was missing, names were drawn from the General list.

The Chronicles of Baltimore: Being a Complete History of "Baltimore Town" & Baltimore City from the Earliest Period to the Present Time, J. Thomas Scharf


19 The Chronicles of Baltimore: Being a Complete History of "Baltimore Town" & Baltimore City from the Earliest Period to the Present Time
J. Thomas Scharf
(1874) reprint, 5½x8½, paper, index, 2 vols., 756 pp, Heritage Books
The compiler sought to record a complete history of Baltimore, and succeeded admirably. This work is drawn from a very extensive and impressive collection of sources. In his effort to be comprehensive the author went so far as to read all the newspapers which had ever been published in Baltimore in search of little-known facts and events. The result is a work filled with interesting tidbits, as well as the major sweep of the city's history, and a great deal of info on people associated with its development. The book begins with the explorations of Capt. John Smith and continues down through 1873. Col. Scharf was born in Baltimore in 1843, and became a prominent lawyer and historian. This work is but one of many by him which are cited in the Harvard Guide to American History. Copies of the original edition of this important local history are very difficult to find.
