Early Landowners of North Central Maryland
  In the late 1970’s and 1980’s George Horvath plotted early land patents to current maps.  He worked with Robert Brent Wilkinson and Michael J Brown to create hand drawn maps of early land patents, so they could be located by researchers.  These early efforts existed because of the initiative and creativity of George Horvath and his dedication to genealogical research.  CCGS has maintained paper copies of these maps and now we have taken “best” copies, scanned them and they are now available through our website for your research.   
 For further information on these early land patents please see the Maryland Land Records online.
