These abstracts were first published in the Dorchester County MD Genealogical Magazine (hard cover). Unlike the 1920 & 1921 abstracts on our present website these are for people who did in Dorchester only. They do not include Dorchester people who died in other counties or Baltimore City. As you can see there is very limited information for some of the certificates. As with any other abstract ALWAYS GET AN ORIGINAL. Originals can be ordered from the Maryland State Archives. We have provided a link at the bottom of the page for your use. Thanks to Deanna Marshall & Janet Ruark for copying these abstracts. Some of the film is bad, so that made the job all the harder to do.
