Using Land Records: Your Key to Unlocking Family History Puzzles
- Family history researchers use land records for many different aspects of their research.
- They can help you to find or prove relationships between ancestors, break through brick walls, or even to make it possible to find and visit an ancestor’s house or property.
- Join Maryland Department librarian Julie Saylor as she discusses how you can find and use this important resource.
Julie Saylor is a lover of history, architecture and the extraordinary stories of everyday people. For the past 32 years she has served as a library associate with Enoch Pratt Free Library in many different departments. Her current home is the Maryland Department, where she has created public programs about house history, historical cooking, and land records. Julie is the mother of two grown daughters and lives in northeast Baltimore where she fills her empty nest with three cats, two chickens, a dog and a guinea pig. In her spare time she loves to read nonfiction and try out new vegetarian recipes. She currently is researching for a program on the history of spirit mediums, magicians, and the Ouija Board.
APRIL Virtual Meeting
Email Notification will be sent Sunday April 18.
Our speaker has allowed us to record her session. We will send a link to our members afterward.

Thank you for your patience as we work through these new procedures for our meetings.
