The Deale Historical Society would like to document local family history. A "Copy and Scan" event will be Monday, November 14, 7pm, in the Main Hall of the Ministry Center at Cedar Grove United Methodist Church in Deale, Maryland. We will copy and document people, places, location, and content depicted in family Bibles, school photos, family reunions, death, marriage and birth memorabilia, then and now photos, boats, watermen, local businesses, etc. We ask that the documentation presented for scanning be only from the immediate South Anne Arundel County area. No cost, no appointment, just bring your history and heritage to share!
Your original documents will be scanned in your presence and returned to you in minutes. Scanned copies and descriptions provided become the property of the Deale Area Historical Society and will be archived at the Deale Museum and available for education and research for future generations.

We are a community-based non-profit organization focused on providing access and education about the history of the Deale Community. The Chaney Family and Herrington Harbour North have provided a small piece of history at the Historic Village and allows the Society to operate the Deale Museum in the Nutwell Schoolhouse and be a part of that historic area re-creation.
