Chronicles Go Digital
The Chronicles of St. Mary’s, published quarterly by the St. Mary’s County Historical Society since 1953, have gone digital.  Members of the Society receive complimentary issues of the Chronicles from the date of their joining the Society.  Individual issues may be purchased by non-members at $4.00 each at the Society’s bookstore in Tudor Hall, Leonardtown.
During the past two years, Society board member, Pete Himmelheber, scanned every issue since 1953.  Researchers and visitors to the Society’s Research Center at Tudor Hall may review the issues online and make copies for a slight fee.  The searchable subject and author index to the Chronicles may be used through the above links.   A membership application for the Society may be downloaded from the website.
Remaining paper copies of the Chronicles, and some of the remaining bound volumes, may be purchased at the Society.
