Hon Alice W. Anderson The Honorable Alice W. Anderson has proudly served the citizens of Talbot County since her election as Register of Wills in September, 1986. Prior thereto, she served as Deputy and Chief Deputy Register of Wills for twenty 20 years, working with The Honorable Harry N. Wilson and The Honorable C. Kenneth Dulin.

An Eastern Shore native, Alice graduated from Chestertown High School and earned her business degree at Goldey Beacom College. During her tenure in the Office of Register of Wills, she has completed numerous continuing education courses with an emphasis on probate through the Maryland Institute for Continuing Professional Education for Lawyers (MICPEL). A member of the Maryland Orphans' Court Association, she is an active member of the Maryland Register of Wills Association and has served on various committees, as well as the Reference and Research Advisory Committee with the Maryland Archives.

Alice was an integral member of the Maryland Register of Wills Automation Committee who laid the groundwork to shift away from paper files to digital imaging and electronic data entry over a decade ago. She dedicated many hours to help design and implement emerging technology to index and store probate documents electronically statewide, making Maryland one of the first states in the nation to implement automated probate court management systems.

Talbot County's estate records have been microfilmed since 1665 and most have been digitalized under the stewardship of Alice. Some estate record docket entries are currently available for public review in her office at a research center as well as online.
