Creating an account

Why is a user name and password necessary?
In order to comply with the Maryland State Information Technology Security Policy and Standards, login accounts are needed for remote access to Mdlandrec.net. A user name and password is not necessary to access Mdlandrec.net from the public workstations at the Maryland County Circuit Courts or the Maryland State Archives.

We require Mdlandrec.net accounts to include contact information for reasons of system security. The contact information also allows us to communicate with users regarding the questions, suggestions, and corrections that they report. We also use patron information to generate aggregate statistics regarding site usage that help us further improve the site.

Will there be a fee to use this system?
This service is being provided free to all those interested in testing the system. There are currently no plans to charge a fee for use of this system.

I was able to access Mdlandrec.net version 2, but the same login will not allow me access to Mdlandrec.net version 3. Why not?
Mdlandrec.net version 3 is a separate website from mdlandrec.net version 2, so you will have to create a new account to gain access. To create a new account, click on "Create Account" at the top left of the login screen.

I have applied for an account, but have received no response. What should I do?
If you have not received a response within 30 minutes of your application, check your spam or junk folders to see if they contain an email from us. If you still cannot find a response, return to the Mdlandrec.net login page. On the login page, click on the word "here" in the second paragraph in the sentence "Or go here if you applied for an account, but did not receive your verification email." By entering your email address, you can request that your verification email be re-sent so that you may activate your account.

Can I have more than one account?
Mdlandrec.net allows one account per email address.

I have forgotten my password. What should I do?
On the Mdlandrec.net login page, click "Did you forget your password?" to request that a password reminder be emailed to you.
