We welcome and encourage you to submit any records you might come across! Please visit the "How-To" page for information on submitting data.




Important Note! Wicomico County wasn't created until 1867 from portions of Somerset and Worcester Counties. The entire Lower Shore area was once Old Somerset County. There are a number of data files on the Somerset County site that cover present-day Wicomico County's area, so be sure to check the Somerset Historical Records page, too.
