Lunch and Learn: The Naylors of Woodborough  (Free Family History Lecture)
12:00 pm
Maryland State Archives, 350 Rowe Blvd., Annapolis, MD 21401
Join Frank Robinson of the Smithsonian Archives and co-author Debra Naylor for their presentation on The Naylors of Woodborough. Part history, part genealogy, part narrative, The Naylors of Woodborough is the culminating work of five researchers who collaborated to publish this Maryland family’s 350-year history using local resources. While it is a local story, the authors have taken pains to place the family in the broader context of American history. What began as a simple exercise in information gathering and sharing grew into a 304-page book, which now serves as the primary published resource for Naylor research in America.

The Naylors of Woodborough, by Joseph Y. Rowe, Debra Naylor, Ruth Naylor, Brenda Ramsey and Franklin A. Robinson Jr., was awarded the Sumner A. Parker Prize and the St. George’s Day Award and will be available for purchase and signing after the talk. Feel free to bring your lunch and your questions to this free program! Please contact emily.squires@maryland.gov to reserve your seat.
