Maryland Genealogical Society


MGS offers webinars on a regular basis about genealogical topics, sources, and research tips, particularly those that are unique to Maryland. While some are publicly available, many are available for MGS Members only. 
Upcoming is a new workshop series developed by MGS for Maryland Public Television called Finding Your Roots With DNA. The three bi-weekly sessions (June 1, June 15, and June 29) will introduce you to genetic genealogy and DNA testing, explain what your DNA test results mean, and help you start to make sense of all the new cousins on your DNA match list. You can still register even though the series has started. Recordings will be available for any sessions you miss in person. For more information, please visit the event registration page
