Digital WHILBR Collections

Our Digital Collection is powered by CONTENTdm®. It contains items added in the past 10 years of Whilbr’s online presence, and some of the collections from the first 10 years, on what was old Whilbr. A few others from the first ten years have been added to the Signature Collections. Others will be added to the Digital Collections soon.

First select a filter – by county or category.

Select Filter by the County if you are interested in discovering all collections involving a specific county. Currently there are 30 for Allegany County, 16 for Garrett and 41 for Washington County.

Filter by Category if you are interested in a specific topic – Cemetery records, Civil War, Military, African American, Women and many others.

In addition, there is a Search Digital WHILBR box to the right below. This searches our ContentDM content on every word transcribed in all collections, so that for the term “Grantsville”, we would find 120 entries in everything from soldiers who fought in World War I to the B-52 bomber crash in Western Maryland, 1964 and David McGauffin’s purchase of three lots in the town in 1810.
