Dorchester County Historical Society

The Dorchester County Historical Society on July 30 will host a discussion on the Bramble family.

CAMBRIDGE — The Bramble family is one of the oldest in Dorchester County. Within one year of the formation of the county, Thomas Bramble received two pieces of land on the Little Choptank River. The Brambles have remained and thrived, branching out to all areas of the county.

Since this is the 350th birthday of Dorchester County, organizers are highlighting this founding family. At noon on Tuesday, July 30, the Dorchester County Historical Society will host a discussion and sharing session for those with Brambles in their family tree.

During this informal session, DCHS volunteers will share information that can be found in the records of the research center. In addition, artifacts, photos and other tidbits will be on display. Visitors are encouraged to bring in their family trees, photos, family stories and artifacts to share with the group.

The Dorchester County Historical Society is headquartered at the Heritage Museums and Gardens of Dorchester, 1003 Greenway Drive in Cambridge. For more information, call 410-228-7953.
