Maryland Minutes Webinars

The Maryland Minutes Webinar Series features webinars about genealogical topics, sources, and research tips that are unique to Maryland.
Our first offering in the series is Using Maryland State Archives Probate Records with FamilySearch by Malissa Ruffner. The pre-recorded, 17-minute video may be viewed and made full-screen with the media viewer below.
Malissa Ruffner joined the MGS board in 2012 as an at-large member, served two years as vice-president, and two years as the managing editor of the Maryland Genealogical Society Journal. She works for the Georgetown Memory Project, tracing descendants of slaves held on Jesuit plantations in Maryland. From 2015 to 2020, Malissa served as the Director of the Genealogical Institute on Federal Records (Gen-Fed) that meets each summer at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. 
This video will be available for public viewing until early March and then will be added to our archive of Maryland Minutes Webinars available to MGS members in the Members Only portion of the web site. If you aren't already a member, we hope that you'll take the time to learn more about the benefits of membership.
We hope you enjoy the webinar!
