The Early State Records Series was created between 1941 and 1950 as a joint project by the Library of Congress and the University of North Carolina. Edited by William Sumner Jenkins it resulted in 1600 reels of microfilm containing government records from 48 states. There were 62 reels created containing records from Maryland up to 1867. They are the starting point from which new transcribed and indexed volumes in the Archives of Maryland in part will be derived.

The digital edition of the Archives of Maryland is published by the Maryland State Archives through a grant from the Information Technology Fund of the State of Maryland. As part of an ongoing effort to provide greater access to Maryland Legal History, the Archives is bringing the Archives of Maryland online, linking the transcribed and edited contents to scans of the original documents from which the indexed transcripts are derived.
