A Common Interest In Our Local History

image-mike-dixonMike Dixon, local history writer and historian, of Cecil County, Maryland, has made a career of sharing a common interest in our local history with everyone within his reach. With a focus on the Mid-Atlantic, he has worked to encourage public interest for over three decades, appearing on TV, on The Today Show and Maryland Public Television, and has been featured in National Geographic, Southern Living, Chesapeake Life, and other publications. An adjunct professor with graduate degrees in history and behavioral science, Mike is also a visiting scholar for several organizations.

From his blog site, Dixon History, you will find links to two other sites he has created: Delmarva History on Facebook, and Mike Dixon on Wix.com. As Mike is from the northwestern area of Delmarva, and although his focus is understandably on that region, he also writes about the historical interests that are shared across all of Delmarva.

In addition to providing a wealth of information that is his creation alone, he has taken the time to share his sources of historical and genealogical information that will be of immense value to someone conducting local or family research. Extensive collections await you just beyond the website links Mike provides.

If you enjoy “rummaging through old books, documents, and crumbling newspapers”, then you will find Mike Dixon’s online contributions to be of great interest.
