American Origins
American Origins, a pilot project and a work in progress, is presented by the Edward H. Nabb Research Center. It is a digital archive, utilizing GIS technology, focusing on the settlement period of 1663 through 1759. The database consists of records pertaining to the inhabitants of the neck of land just south of the Wicomico River in Somerset County, Maryland currently referred to as Mt. Vernon. This area, formerly known as the Hungary Neck district, contained portions of the Monie and Wicomico Hundreds during the colonial period.
