?Researching African American Families at the Maryland State Archives
A new publication from the Maryland State Archives is available here.

From the publication:

"People researching African American history are particularly fortunate if their families lived in Maryland. A strong tradition of record keeping from the earliest days of settlement has resulted in the preservation of a vast amount of material relevant to African American history. This material can be found primarily at the Maryland State Archives in Annapolis, where the permanent public records of state, county, and local agencies are conveniently centralized. Records concerning African Americans, once neglected by professional historians and genealogists alkie, provide new insights into the Maryland experience for people of color."
