"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we have come from.  Without this enriching knowledge there is  a hollow yearning.  No matter what our attainments in life there is still a vacuum.  An emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness."  Alex Haley

Caroline County Courthouse, ca. 1914


Welcome to the Caroline County MDGenWeb Project

Caroline County MDGenWeb is a part of the USGenWeb Project and
 is an all-volunteer effort.   My name is Adina Watkins Dyer and I
 am the coordinator for Caroline County.  I do not live near Caroline County and cannot do on-site research, but will try to answer your questions as best I can. Please take time to sign my guestbook so
 I'll know you were here!   If you would like to host a county,
 contact Shari Handley, the Maryland State Coordinator.
