Record Retrieval Information

Every half hour starting at 8:45 AM with the last pull of the day at 3:45 PM.

IMPORTANT: Please note that many modern court records and some genealogical records are stored off-site and must be retrieved prior to the day of your visit. Records located off-site must be requested seven to ten business days before your visit by emailing us at msa.helpdesk@maryland.gov using “Court Records” as your subject heading.

As always, the Archives’ goal is to provide excellent service while assisting you with your records and research needs. Please help us by requesting records in advance of your visit at msa.helpdesk@maryland.gov
