Slave Families of Richard Barnes (c. 1745-1804) of Tudor Hall, Leonardtown, MD  (SMCGS Monthly Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Southern Maryland Higher Education Center
Joan Wise will tell of her research of the Slave Families of Richard Barnes [circa 1745-1804] of Tudor Hall, Leonardtown, 
Maryland, and the various records she used during the research. She has been able to connect several families with their African American ancestors from the 1700s. Saint Mary's County has been fortunate that certain records pertaining to slavery have survived and that the previous generation of genealogists and family historians paved the way for us.

In Search of a Con Man  (Local Area Genealogy Societies)
7:00 pm to 9:30 pm
Severna Park Community Center 623 Baltimore Annapolis Blvd. Severna Park, MD
Featuring our guest speaker Carol Carman 
President of Anne Arundel Genealogical Society 
Thursday, February 7, 2019 7:00 pm until 9:30 pm
 

 
Carol Carman has been searching for the parents of her orphaned great grandfather since she began her family history research in the 1970s. She has made many trips to Allegan County, Michigan, where the family lived, to search vital, land, and probate records. She also followed a brother who homesteaded across the west through Iowa, Nebraska, Dakota Territory, Idaho, and Oregon. She examined Civil War pension files of all of the relatives and several of the neighbors. But finally, this summer while preparing to get the help of a professional researcher she came across the con man who would lead to the solution of who the parents were – well almost anyway. And he was right there in Allegan County all along.    Carol Carman has a BA from the University of Michigan and a master’s in library science from the University of Wales (United Kingdom). She worked almost 40 years in libraries, the longest over 27 years for the Maryland General Assembly.
