The Maryland State Archives will be hosting a lecture to be given by Michael Hait on Saturday December 8, 2012 from 10 AM until 12 PM concerning Identifying Slave Owners in Maryland.
This lecture will present tips and techniques for researching African-American ancestors in Maryland. One will also learn about several record groups created by the Maryland government that deal specifically with both freed and enslaved African-Americans, and how to identify the owners of enslaved African-Americans.
