County his­to­rian seeks in­for­ma­tion for web­site

Record Observer - - News -

CENTREVILLE — At the Queen Anne’s County Com­mis­sion meet­ing in early Novem­ber, County His­to­rian Mary Mar­garet Rev­ell Good­win made a pre­sen­ta­tion re­gard­ing the new Queen Anne’s County His­tor y web­site be­ing built that will cover all 310 years of the county’s his­tory.

Pri­mary ar­eas of cov­er­age are: in­di­vid­u­als who made sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions of any kind to the coun- ty, busi­nesses of all kinds, agri- cul­tural his­tory, his­toric prop­er­ties and those who lived in them through the years, ma­jor events — even sig­nif­i­cant fires — and all ma­jor or­ga­ni­za­tions.

The pub­lic is re­quested to sub­mit any­thing in th­ese named cat­e­gories as soon as pos­si­ble that they feel mer­its be­ing in­cluded in the his­tor y web­site.

When sub­mit­ting in­for­ma­tion, Good­win asks to leave con­tact in­for­ma­tion for fol­lowup ques­tions in or­der to com­plete the in­for­ma­tion. The county his­tory web­site will be the for­mal in­for­ma­tion site for all the his­tory of the county.

Ar­eas of spe­cial in­ter­est are all of Kent Is­land, all of Gra­sonville, parts of Queen­stown and all of the north­ern part of the county. A con­sid­er­able amount of in­for­ma­tion has been ac­cu­mu­lated for Centreville, Good­win said. If any­one is a de­scen­dant of any fam­ily in the county dur­ing the early 1900s or late 1800s, Good­win asks them to con­tact her.

Con­tact may be made by Face­book per­sonal mes­sage to Mary Mar­garet Rev­ell Good­win, or on the county his­tory Face­book page, MMRG--His­tory of Queen Anne’s County Data Needs. In­for­ma­tion can be mailed to Good­win at P.O. Box 114, Centreville, MD 21617.

Good­win said she hopes the web­site will go live this up­com­ing sum­mer, though it will take the co­op­er­a­tion of county cit­i­zens to as­sure that no one is left out of the doc­u­mented his­tory.
