Introduction to Genealogy - With a Focus on Maryland
In January 2021, MGS partnered with Maryland Public Television (MPT) to present Finding Your Roots: Genealogy Workshop, which provided participants with an introduction to genealogy - with an emphasis on Maryland research. Topics covered included getting started in genealogy, online genealogy, African American research, and DNA testing for genealogy. We're pleased to be able to make this workshop and associated handouts available on the MGS website.
