Series Information
(Safeco Title Company Collection)

Series Description

The predecessors of the Safeco Title Company were the Maryland Title Company and the Title Guarantee Company, which merged in 1960 forming the Maryland Title Guarantee Company. In 1970, the company changed its name to the American General Title Company, but around 1978 this name was once again changed to the Safeco Title Company.

Previous to the merger of the two title companies in 1960 each had accumulated copies of maps showing sections of city blocks, estates, and suburban developments for use in the processing of titles. Therefore, once the merger was effect the Maryland Title Guarantee Company possessed nearly identical sets of property maps. It is the duplicate set which constitutes the Safeco Title Company collection of approximately 4,800 maps.
