Welcome to USGS !

The Upper Shore Genealogical Society of Maryland is celebrating its 43rd year. Founded in 1973, the USGS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization run by volunteers and covers Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne's and Talbot Counties on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

The USGS began following a genealogy class for beginning researchers, held at the Chesapeake College in Wye Mills, Maryland. From the initial class of fourteen, the organization now offers information and assistance to more than one hundred members. We welcome you to trace your family genealogy and history, visit the USGS Research Center, and become a member of USGS.
