Sunday, May 25, 3:00 pm — Finding Family History at the Baltimore City Archives – Malissa Ruffner
Malissa will give a brief history of BCA – from the earliest days to its current association with the Maryland State Archives – and give an overview of its holdings. She will describe the kind of genealogical information you might find, how to prepare for a research visit, and what to expect when you arrive.
Malissa holds an MLS degree and worked as an archivist before heeding the call of genealogy. She was a volunteer at BCA for several years and has conducted personal and client research on-site. She currently serves as an at-large board member of the Maryland Genealogical Society and launched its Facebook page in April 2013.
