Past Perfect (Online Catalog)

The Historical Society’s record keeping system is called PastPerfect. This is an online KEYWORD search database providing researchers the ability to search our records without having to travel to the Headquarters. All of the library books, vertical files and AV materials are indexed online. Our volunteers are continuing to input records from our extensive document base that dates to colonial Harford County. Past Perfect also has a link to The Maryland Historical Trust’s information on the state inventoried Harford County properties. In addition to being a great research tool, PastPerfect is used to better facilitate the administration of record keeping and communication with our members.
