    Baltimore was a major entry point for immigrants to America. Learn about its history and the sources available to document individuals who arrived through this port.


  2. The Dead and the Dying: Cemeteries, Funeral Homes, & Obituaries by Rebecca Whitman Koford
    Get into the spirit of cemetery research by introducing a few superstitions that motivated our ancestors’ understanding of death and the afterlife.
    Next, we discuss records of death outside of traditional death certificates, funeral home records, and touch on the importance of finding obituaries.
    Lastly, we look at cemeteries and headstone iconography and how to prepare for a visit to the cemetery.


  3. Are You My Grandpa?: Men of the Same Name by Rebecca Whitman Koford
    This lecture is for all of us who discover that their ancestor has a name in common with someone else in their community.
    We discuss techniques for comparing and contrasting the records of these people in order to separate our ancestors with another line.
    Case studies are included throughout the lecture with a focus on Maryland and Baltimore records.

MD to KY... Beyond Genealogy Conference (Events)  (Other Events )
Owensboro, KY
 For more detail check with the St. Mary's County Historical Society
The Maryland to Kentucky Reunion (MD to KY ... Beyond Genealogy Conference) will be held on June 22-25 at Brescia University in Owensboro, KY.  The idea for this event originated in 1988 during a Buckman, Leake and Montgomery family reunion in Monroe City, Missouri.  These families wanted to bring together those who had spent years researching the genealogy of families involved in the Maryland to Kentucky pioneer migration, so they could share their research in person.  In 1990, the first Maryland to Kentucky reunion was held at Nazareth, Kentucky.  Today the event is more than a reunion, bringing together genealogists of all; levels of experience to share information and learn new research techniques from experts in the field of genealogy research.  The Reunions were held every other year in either Kentucky, Missouri, or St. Mary's County.  The last reunion in St. Mary's County was held in 2010  The next Reunion was not held until 2014 and it took place in Springfield, KY.  Brochures on the Reunion are available at SMCHS.  Your can also request your own packet through email at  Information on the Reunion can also be found on Facebook at MDtoKYandBeyondInc.
