In this webinar, techniques for finding birth records, marriage records, death records and other life events are discussed. The Maryland State Archives, FamilySearch, and Ancestry websites are used to demonstrate the research that can be performed. Newspaper archives can also be used to learn details about your family. Using civil records and church records to discover more about your ancestors will give you the “roots” to grow a vibrant and full family tree.
This webinar is the second in a four-part series that was developed by MGS and presented to registered attendees during September and October 2021 in partnership with Maryland Public Television.
