Upcoming Archival Research Demonstration

Tuesday, April 14, at 7:30, the Charles County Archaeological Society will meet in room LR102 (that's in the basement of the 'Learning Center,' known by the over-40 crowd as the library) at the College of Southern Maryland. If interested in attending, please contact me for directions.

I will demonstrate several facets of conducting local historical research online, emphasizing maps, censuses, and land title research. The reason for holding the meeting at the College (which is just a few miles north of Port Tobacco) is that we will need a good Internet connection. Connectivity at Port Tobacco is unreliable and slow.

This will be a demonstration and not a workshop. For a workshop we would have to meet in a computer pod where everybody would have a machine to work on. Perhaps we can manage that later in the year.

Please join us.
