The Carroll County Genealogical Society has a newsletter exchange program. Our society exchanges newsletters with many other Genealogical Societies within Maryland and out of state. Many of these newsletters contain articles that can provide a researcher with unexpected information. As an example, a recent issue of the Genealogical Society of Allegany County, The Old Pike Post contained an article on “The Shrivers of Cumberland”. This branch of the Shrivers were connected to the Shriver line of the Little Pipe Creek area in Carroll County, previously Frederick County.
In addition, you may find information about programs, speakers, interesting projects and challenges involving these organizations.
