NOTE: This meeting is on Thursday rather than our usual meeting day of Wednesday.

Whether a researcher has been collecting information for a long time or has suddenly inherited someone else’s research, they will need to: 1.) Organize it, 2.) Decide what is valuable and what isn’t, 3.) Make it available to others through some type of publication, and 4.) Provide for the collection’s survival.  This lecture will encourage organization (both paper and computer) and preservation of the materials; analysis and writing the family history using standard numbering systems including NGSQ and the Register systems. Evidence analysis and source citations will be discussed as will the use of computer programs as tools for organization and writing. Discussion also includes the use of artifacts and photographs in the family history and a genealogical will or codicil for the disposal of both the material and paper collections.

Description: Census Records are invaluable documents that are commonly utilized by family historians and genealogists in recreating the identities of their ancestors! In this presentation, Rebecca will discuss information that was recorded on each of the U.S. Federal Census Records from 1870-1940 and how these details can provide insight into an ancestor’s migration, socio-economic status, occupation, and familial relationships among other aspects. Like Census Records, City Directories can also provide key information regarding your ancestor’s locations, especially in between Census years. Rebecca will share research techniques and methodologies correlating (but not limited to) Census Records, City Directories, Vital Records, and Orphan Asylum Records, tracing and recreating the identities of her 2nd great-grandparents, John and Mary Rainey and their family.

David H. Wallace (1926-2024) was a well-known and loved member of the Frederick community and long-time volunteer in the Maryland Room of Frederick County Public Libraries. He was active in many of our County's local history organizations.  He published several transcriptions of Frederick primary sources, including diaries and records from All Saints Episcopal Church.  In his work for the FCPL Maryland Room, Dr. Wallace indexed over 700 works, completely changing the way the Maryland Room, and its patrons, accessed these works.  His index to the obituaries of 20th century Frederick County African American was ground breaking. Join us as we discuss Dr. Wallace's contributions to Frederick's history and birding communities, along with his life as a long term Frederick resident.  Samples of his works will be on display. Portions of his interview for the Frederick County Veterans History Project will be shown.
