Quaker Genealogy - AAGS Meeting  (Local Area Genealogy Societies)
7:30 pm to 9:00 pm
Severna Park United Methodist Church, 731 Benfield Road, Severna Park, MD

This presentation will focus on using Quaker Meeting records and other sources.

Cynthia Steinhoff is the director of the library at Anne Arundel Community College, where she has been a member of the faculty for almost 35 years. A graduate of Edinboro State College (now Edinboro University of Pennsylvania), she also holds a Master of Library Science degree from Clarion University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Business Administration degree from University of Baltimore.

She began researching her own family about fifteen years ago, using research skills honed through more than 40 years as a librarian, and now does genealogical research relating to girls who stitched samplers in the late 1700s through the 1850s, both pieces in her own collection and others. She contributed to and copyedited Wrought With Careful Hand: Ties of Kinship on Delaware Samplers, the catalog that accompanied an exhibition of 60 Delaware samplers at the Biggs Museum of American Art in Dover, Delaware in 2013 and is co-author of the forthcoming work Delaware Discoveries: Girlhood Embroidery, 1750-1850. Her interest in and experience with Quaker genealogy comes from researching girls from Quaker families who made samplers in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
