Baltimore City and Baltimore County Marriage Records Guide
Marriage Licenses
The 1777 law applied only to the marriage of white citizens. Not until 1867 did the marriage laws apply
to blacks. Licenses generally are listed chronologically in record books, and sometimes include a
sequential number assigned by the clerk. The date of the license, names of the two parties, and sometimes
the minister's name are recorded. No other information is given, and the license does not prove a marriage
occurred. Often the record contains an accounting of the fees paid. The Directory of Maryland Ministers
by Edna Agatha Kanely can be used to determine the church or parish associated with the minister's name
on the license. Many of the license records have been abstracted and published. Refer to list of
publications listed in this article. The Archives has marriage licenses in the original and/or on microfilm.
The Maryland State Archives holds indices to some of these records.
Marriage Records
In 1865 Maryland required the recording of births, deaths, and marriages at the county level, with further
reporting to the Secretary of the Senate. Persons officiating at marriages were required to return a copy of
the license to the appropriate court clerk who would record the marriage date in the marriage record.
The marriage records created under the 1865 law contain the date of the license; age, race,
residence, occupation, and marital status of the bride and groom; date and place of marriage; and
name, title, and residence of the minister. Records after 1886 exclude the minister's title and

residence of the minister. Records after 1886 exclude the minister's title and residence. Entries usually are
arranged alphabetically by the first letter of the male's surname and then chronologically. The Archives
has marriage records in the original and/or on microfilm. The Maryland State Archives holds indices to
some of these records.
Marriage License Applications
An 1886 law required signed applications for marriage licenses. It also restricted marriage to males over
age twenty-one and females over sixteen, later changed to twenty-one and eighteen and then eighteen and
sixteen. After 1939 pregnant females, and after 1949 putative fathers over age sixteen, could obtain
licenses without parental consent. In 1937 a waiting period of two days was added. The law specified that
marriage application records contain name, residence, age, race, occupation, and marital status of each
party; date of the application, sometimes date of the license and marriage; consent of the parents or
guardians of minors; and signature of the applicant. For some unknown reason the law was not applied in
Baltimore City where the records include only the names of the parties, date of application, and signature
of the applicant, all of which is written in pencil. Entries in the county and city records are arranged
chronologically by date of application. The Archives has marriage license applications in the original
and/or on microfilm.
Marriages by Banns
From the time marriage licenses were first required in 1777, Maryland allowed individuals to marry
without a license if public notice was given at a church on three Sundays prior to the wedding, a process
known as publication of banns. An 1890 law provided for the recordation of these marriages by requiring
the ministers to file a certificate with the court clerk who would record the information. The records
include the date and place of marriage, names of the parties and minister, and name of the church. Entries
are arranged alphabetically by the first letter of the male's surname and then chronologically. Marriages
by banns prior to 1890 can be found only in church records.
The provisions for marriage by banns were repealed in 1941 and replaced with a requirement that all
individuals obtain licenses. The Archives has marriages by banns in the original and/or on microfilm.
Marriage Certificates
In 1910 the General Assembly created the Bureau of Vital Statistics as an agency under the State
Department of Health (Chapter 560, Laws of 1910). The Bureau of Vital Statistics was responsible for
supervising the registration of births and deaths in Maryland. The Bureau became responsible for
marriages in 1914 with the passage of a new law: "It shall be the duty of the Clerk of the Court in
Baltimore City and in the several Counties of the State of Maryland to transmit to the Bureau of Vital
Statistics of the State Department of Health . . . a report of each marriage that has been reported to them."
(Chapter 745, Laws of 1914). The purpose of the law was to ensure against the loss or destruction of the
records filed at the circuit courts.
From 1914 to 1940 the Bureau of Vital Statistics maintained one series of marriage certificates for the
counties and another series for Baltimore City. In 1941, the Bureau began filing the Baltimore City
certificates with the county certificates, creating a single series of records. Unfortunately for researchers,
the Bureau did not begin indexing the certificates until 1951 when the General Assembly authorized them
to provide certified copies of marriages performed after June 1, 1951 (Chapter 76, Laws of 1951). Also in
1951, the Bureau was given its current name of the Division of Vital Records.
Baltimore City 1914-1940, series no. T317
During the years 1914 to 1940, the Bureau of Vital Statistics arranged the Baltimore City certificates
chronologically by year and month. Within each month they are sometimes alphabetical by the groom's
Volume 19 Number 1 (No. 97)

name and sometimes in no particular order at all. Because there is no index, one must know the month,
year, and groom's name to find a certificate. Each certificate provides the names, ages, birthplaces, races,
occupations and residences of the couple, the date of the license, the date and location of the marriage,
and the name of the minister. The certificates also indicate whether there was a prior marriage and the
names of the consenting parents, or guardians, if one of the parties was a minor. If neither the bride nor
the groom was a minor, the parents are not listed. This series is called Department Of Health And Mental
Hygiene, Division Of Vital Records (Marriage Certificates, BC) MSA T317.
Counties 1914-1930, series no. SM184, Microfilm
There are two series of county marriage certificates for the years 1914 to 1930. The first is called
Department Of Health, Bureau Of Vital Statistics (Marriage Certificate List) MSA S1498, Microfilm.
This series is an incomplete set of certificates arranged in soundex order by the groom's name. The
more complete series Is Department Of Health, Bureau Of Vital Statistics (Marriage Certificates,
Counties, Female) MSA Microfilm. The certificates are arranged in soundex order by the name of the
bride. The records list the names, ages, races, residences, occupations, and birthplaces of the couple, the
date of the license, the date and place of the marriage, and the name of the minister. The certificates also
indicate whether there were any prior marriages and list consenting parents or guardians, if one of the
parties was a minor.
Counties 1931-1940, series no. T318
Between the years 1931 and 1940 the Bureau of Vital Statistics arranged the county marriage certificates
in soundex order by the name of the groom. The certificates give the names, ages, races, birthplaces,
occupations and residences of the couple, the date of the license, the date and place of the marriage, and
the name of the minister. The certificates also indicate whether there were any prior marriages and list
consenting parents or guardians, if one of the parties was a minor. This series is called Department Of
Health And Mental Hygiene, Division Of Vital Records (Marriage Certificates, Counties) MSA T318.
Counties and Baltimore City 1941-1987, series no. T315
Beginning in 1941, the Bureau of Vital Statistics maintained both city and county marriages as a single
series of records. The series is called Department Of Health and Mental Hygiene, Division Of Vital
Records (Marriage Certificates) MSA T315.
1941-1951
For the years 1941 to June 1951, the certificates are arranged chronologically by year and month. Within
each month they are arranged alphabetically by jurisdiction and then alphabetically by the groom's name.
The certificates list the names, ages, races, birthplaces, and residences of the couple, the date of the
license, the date and place of the marriage, and the name of the minister. They do not list the names of
parents or guardians unless one of the parties was a minor. Unfortunately, there are no indexes for these
years. One must know the year, month, county and groom's name to find a certificate.
1951-1972
In June 1951, when the General Assembly authorized the Division of Vital Records to provide certified
copies of marriage records, the Division began to file the certificates numerically by certificate number.
In order to access the certificates, the agency created two indexes, one by bride and one by groom. Since
the groom index contains some missing or torn pages, the bride index is more complete. The Archives has
copies of the indexes on microfilm.
The certificates contain the names, ages, races, birthplaces, residences and marital status of the couple, the
date of the license, the date and place of the marriage, the name of the minister, and the church or office
Volume 19 Number 1 (No. 97)
THE NOTEBOOK

where the marriage was performed. These certificates no longer include the names of consenting parents
or guardians of minors.
1973-1987
In 1973, the Division of Vital Records began indexing the marriage certificates electronically, although
the certificates continued to be arranged numerically by certificate number. The State Archives does not
have access to the marriage database, which covers 1973 to the present. The Archives does hold the
certificates through 1987. Certificates for the year 1979, however, remain at the Division. The certificates
contain the same information as described for the years 1951 to 1972, except that they omit the
information on race.
1987-present
For marriage certificates after 1987, please contact the circuit court in the county where the marriage
occurred.

PC Problems? Try These Quick Fixes - by Jim Edwards
(c) Jim Edwards - All Rights reserved http://www.thenetreporter.com
Have you ever had your computer make you want to commit an act of violence, such as throwing it out
the window? No, not you.
Computer problems only happen to other people -NOT! Nothing frustrates me more than having a
deadline or important task interrupted by my computer losing its mind. The next time your computer acts
up, try these tips and see if you can't solve the problem before you give in to temptation and heave a brick
through your monitor.
Computer Locked-Up?
Computers usually lock-up because a program becomes unstable or performs an illegal function.
Regardless of why your computer stopped responding, the following sequence should help you avoid
damaging your software while trying to get going again. The first step after you lock up is to press the
Ctrl+Alt+Delete keys at the same time. A dialog box should appear showing which programs are running.
Look for a program that has 'Not Responding' or a similar message next to the program name. If your
mouse still works, click on the program and then click 'End Task' or 'End Process'. If this unlocks the
computer, exit Windows and shutdown properly. Restart in 15 seconds.
If your mouse doesn't work, but your keyboard still functions, press Alt+F4 to start closing down
programs, including Windows.
Volume 19 Number 1 (No. 97)
THE NOTEBOOK
Page 7
If your mouse and keyboard don't respond at all, none of the above steps work, and you can't shut down
properly, turn your computer off or hold in the power button for 4-6 seconds until the computer shuts
down. Restart in 15 seconds.
Computer Won't Boot Up?
Make sure you don't have any floppy disks in the disk drive. A floppy in the drive will prevent the
computer from starting properly and can cause no end of embarrassment if you've already called tech
support for help.
Hard Drive Making Noises?
Now that's a cause for serious panic! If your hard drive starts making strange noises, you need to act
quickly. Drastic changes in the usual 'beeps and burps' of your computer can represent anything from a
loose screw to the imminent and catastrophic loss of all your data. Log on to http://support.wdc.com/dlg/
and you can test the health of your hard drive and spot problems before they get really bad. This free
service offered by Western Digital, one of the world's largest hard drive manufacturers, gets a very high
endorsement from Smart Computing magazine.
Blue Screen of Death
The ultimate cause for panic... at least for me. Who hasn't gotten that blue screen in Microsoft Windows
telling you a fatal error has occurred and directing you to 'press any key to continue' or 'hold down the
Ctrl+Alt+Delete keys to restart your computer?' Needless to say, most people either get scared or annoyed
upon seeing the screen, but usually do as they're told. The same thing happens when error messages pop
up telling them a program has performed an 'illegal operation.' Most people just click 'continue' without
ever checking out the details. Everyone experiences computer errors occasionally, but those errors can
also signal a deeper computer or software problem. To save time and money on technical support, users
should do the following every time an error message appears: WRITE it down! Record the error message,
time, date, and the circumstances under which the error occurred. With a blue screen message, write down
the entire error message.
When an illegal operation occurs, click the 'details' button and write down everything that appears
beginning with and ending with the words in CAPITAL letters. Write down any other error messages as
well. Recording this information will aid your computer technician or software technical support in
spotting any trends and it will definitely save you time when explaining what happened. The more
quickly the tech understands the problem, the faster your computer gets fixed! The moral of the story:
don't let small problems get big! If you repeatedly experience an error or a problem, get it fixed. You
might pay a computer tech for an hour of their time now, but it sure beats spending several hundred
dollars (or worse) later on down the road.

QUERIES(RootsWeb, but the ideas applies to other Boards) are an excellent way to find others who are
researching the same or connecting families, and who may have information you seek.
To accomplish this make proper use of the SUBJECT line, SURNAME box, and CLASSIFICATION
menu when you post.
SUBJECT LINE: Make the subject complete, concise, and specific in describing the content of your
message. Do NOT use vague terms like "genealogy," "searching," or "looking for grandfather."
ALWAYS include Name, Location and Date.
SURNAME BOX ENTRIES: Enter only the surnames that you have included in the message you have
posted. Surnames with common spelling variants such as Wood and Woods should be listed separately
and NOT as: Wood(s) or Wood/Woods.
The SURNAME BOX entry enables Message Board searchers to use the ADVANCED SEARCH option
and search ONLY on names.
CLASSIFICATION: Proper classification of messages enables Message Board users to view and/or
search messages by data type. If you are posting data, select the type that most closely matches the type of
information you are posting: BIBLE, CEMETERY, WILL, DEED, PENSION, MARRIAGE,
BIOGRAPHY, etc. (listed under MESSAGE TYPE).
Archives are a great way to do a lot quickly. Threaded Responses to an original message are displayed in
an outline format. RootsWeb: http://archiver.rootsweb.com/
Interactive Search (searchable archives): http://searches2.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/listsearch.pl allows
you to search a single Mailing List one year at a time. Select a keyword, name, or phrase to obtain results
matching your search criteria.
Effective Posting
Stop and critique your query before you post. When writing the query, keep in mind what you already
know and what you wish to learn. Include the name, the dates or timeframe involved, the location where
the individual(s) resided, died, were born, or were married, and exactly what information you wish to
learn.
Mailing Lists
Lists can be received either by message individually or in Digest mode, messages grouped together.
More than 25,500 lists available.
Lists can include:
Location: Country, county, city & regional, geographic area, Census districts, etc.
Ethnic & Nationality:
Surname & Surname-location combinations
Special Interest: Occupation, Military, Railroads, Freeman, Clubs, Timeframe (Gen-Medieval), Royalty
Religion, Religion & Location, Churches
Science: DNA studies, etc.
Genealogical research techniques
Genealogical tools & software (FTM, PAF, FO, Legacy, TMG, etc)
And more.

Where are they?
Most ISPs have at least one Usenet hosting service available. BCPL uses ABS.net as its hosting News
Server (slightly censured version and audience oriented). They can also be subscribed to directly and you
may or may not ISP as a connection.
How?
Access is by a News Reader. Software found either downloadable free or as part of products like Ms
Outlook Express. There are MAC & Linux News Readers too. Find the best at TuCows
http://tucows.com/. Search for “newsreaders”, look for a 5 cow rating.
Think of it as a very large email program where messages and data are grouped together. You can
subscribe to each group (your reader collects the messages for you) or just visit once in a while.
Don’t subscribe immediately unless you are sure you want that group.

The First Law of Newsgroup Posting- All messages are subject to a propagation delay.
The Second Law of Newsgroup Posting- Before pressing the send button, THINK Twice!
The Third Law of Newsgroup Posting- Go easy with the attachments.
The Fourth Law of Newsgroup Posting– Remove unnecessary duplication in your replies.
Why?
Genealogy! There are many groups spread over a wide range of Genealogy or related topics. Start with
the “Soc.genealogy…”, topics include Country specific, Language specific, Computing, Marketplace
(products), Medieval (my favorite), Religious, methodologies and Surnames by language or country.

You can also find out about related topics; such as geographical data, plan a trip with points of interest or
how to preserve paper and photographic documents.
Volume & Effort Level
The more groups you subscribe to the more messages you will see. An active group can easily be 20 or
30 messages per day. Add to your activity slowly so you don’t get buried. Use your delete key freely and
DO NOT try to read everything.
Their Nature & Civility
Moderated or Not? http://www.swcp.com/~dmckeon/mod-faq.htm
Un-moderated groups allow anyone to say anything, whether it is appropriate, on topic, civil or uncouth;
so the language in some of these groups can be adult oriented.
Safe Newsgroup Behavior
If you disagree with someone, tell him or her privately via email or ignore it.
Never cross post a single message to multiple newsgroups.
It is considered to be rude to post commercial messages.
Don't post your message using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, it is the same as shouting.
Respect the rights of others.
Censorship is strictly forbidden on the newsgroups. If someone posts something you don't like,
asking them to remove it, or re-post a cleaner version is not allowed.
A few group members are sarcastic, cruel, demanding, irrational, unpleasant or impaired, just like in real
life. Flame wars or excessive arguments should be avoided. Always remember not everyone has the
same cultural background, beliefs and point of view that you do. If you are going to let children access
the newsgroups, be with them while they are doing it.

All about Scrapbooks
Each individual and each marriage in your Family File has a Scrapbook — where you can store
virtually any type of information about your family, including Kodak Photo CD Pictures; OLE
objects such as sound files, video files, text files, and picture files; and non-OLE picture files
such as bitmaps (.bmp), JPEG (jpgX and TIFF (.tif) files. Family Tree Maker also supports
Windows Metafiles (.wmf), Photoshop 3.0 Opsd), and Flashpix (.fpx) graphics files. Once you
insert one of these items, it is called a Picture/Object.
Note: If you arc planning to include large images and video clips in your Scrapbooks, keep the
capabilities of your computer in mind. If you only have the minimum system requirements, your
machine will run slowly when you work with large images and video/sound clips. In fact, if your
machine does not have enough RAM, you may not be able to load particularly large files. In
addition, you will need quite a bit of free space on your hard drive to store large images and video
clips.
Scrapbook pages allow you to use your creativity — for example, you can display
pictures at full size or play videos and sounds. You can even play a whole Scrapbook at once in a
"slide show." You can also include scanned pictures, scanned school papers, and video files to
create childhood pages in each of your children's Scrapbooks. Scanned, or Photo CDs of a
couple's wedding and anniversary parties combined with special songs would make a beautiful
record of a marriage.
After adding a Picture/Object to a Scrapbook — use the More About Picture/Object
dialog box to add a caption and category. Categories are useful when it's time to print or search
for a Picture/Object. For example, if you want to look at all the Pictures/Objects related to
childhood birthdays and you give all those pictures the category "Childhood Birthday," you can
locate and display them easily. Put some thought into the categories you create. You will find that
it pays off when you print documents that include Pictures/Objects. Will you want family trees
containing a portrait of each individual as an adult? How about special anniversary address labels
that contain each couple's wedding picture? Thinking about the types of documents that you
might want to print later will help you create clear, concise categories. Some that might be useful
include Portrait, Portrait-Teen, Wedding, Wedding-Reception, Graduation, Bar Mitzvah,
Thanksgiving, Vacation. Some time spent considering categories you will use will save you lots
of time later.
Printing Images from Scrapbooks
To print an image from a Scrapbook:
1.
Display the Scrapbook that contains the image you want, and select (highlight) the image.
2.
From the Picture/Object menu, select View,
Family Tree Maker displays the View Picture dialog box containing the image you selected.
3.
Click Print.
Family Tree Maker displays the Print Picture dialog box.
4.
Resize the image as you wish using the scrolling arrows, then click OK.
Family Tree Maker closes the Print Picture dialog box and displays the Print dialog box.
5.
Make your selections and click OK to begin printing your image. Then click Close to
close the View Picture dialog box and return to the Scrapbook view.

Picture size and your computer
Family Tree Maker cannot import a Kodak Photo CD picture file that is larger than the
amount of physical RAM or hard disk space available on your machine. Physical RAM
refers to the size of the memory chips that are in your computer. Keep in mind that once
Windows is running, some of your computer's physical RAM is already in use and is not
available for importing pictures.
The higher the resolution of a particular picture, the larger the picture file will be. If your
machine is unable to handle a picture at a higher resolution, try importing it at a lower
resolution. Please note that the compression that you choose for a picture does not afTect
whether or not Family Tree Maker can import it. This is because compression takes place
after a picture has been imported.
The table below should give you an idea of approximate picture sizes before
compression. For example, if you wanted to import a picture at the 1024 x 1536
resolution, you would need 4.7 MB of physical RAM available, no matter what
compression you chose for the picture. Please keep this limitation of your computer
hardware in mind when you work with Kodak Photo CD pictures.
Photo CD Picture Resolution Approximate Required Physical RAM
64 x 96 (thumbnail) 36K
128x192
73K
256 x 384 (recommended)

Selecting the resolution and compression for a single
picture
You can change the compression of a picture from several places;
•
•
•
From the Insert Picture dialog box when you are placing a picture into a
Scrapbook from a file.
From the Insert from Photo CD dialog box when you are placing a new Photo CD
Picture in a Scrapbook.
From the Change Compression/Resolution dialog box whenever you are in a
Scrapbook.
In addition, if you want to set a default compression or resolution for all pictures that you
place in a Scrapbook in the future, see the topic Selecting defaults for picture resolution
and compression.
Volume 19 Number 2 (NO. 98)
THE NOTEBOOK

DEFINITIONS
JPG/JPEG
JPEGs, also called JPG, stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group. The compression scheme
works by looking for redundant information in the file and eliminating it. This makes file sizes
small. You'll lose some data every time you save an image as a JPEG.
Short for Joint Photographic Experts Group, and pronounced jay-peg. JPEG is a lossy
compression technique for color images. Although it can reduce files sizes to about 5% of their
normal size, some detail is lost in the compression.
GIF
GIF stands for Graphics Interchange Format. CompuServe developed the format for its online
ventures. You'll often see it referred to as CompuServe or CompuServe GIF.
GIFs save space by restricting you to 256 colors or fewer (unlike JPEGs, which allow millions). If
you look closely at a GIF image, you may see a bunch of dots in certain areas. This is due to
"dithering." Since GIFs only work with a certain number of colors, they shift the dots around from
the colors they have in order to create - to fake - the colors they don't have.
TIF/TIFF
Acronym for tagged image file format, one of the most widely supported file formats for storing
bit-mapped images on persons! computers (both PCs and Macintosh computers;. Other popular
formats are BMP and PCX.
TIFF graphics can be any resolution, and they can be black and white, gray-scaled, or color. Files
in TIFF format often end with a .tif extension,
EPS
Abbreviation of Encapsulated PostScript. Pronounced as separate letters, EPS is the graphics file
format used by the PostScript language.
EPS files can be either binary or ASCI). The term EPS usually implies that the file contains a bi^
mapped representation of the graphics for display purposes. In contrast, PostScript files include
only the PostScript commands for printing the graphic.
BMP
The standard bit-mapped graphics format used in the Windows environment. By convention,
graphics files in the BMP format end with a.BMP extension.
BMP files store graphics in a format called device-independent bitmap (DIB).
PCX
Originally developed by ZSOFT for its PC Paintbrush program. PCX is a graphics file format for
aiaphjcs programs running on PCs. It is supported by most optical scanners, fax programs, and
desktop publishing systems. Files in the PCX format end with a ".pcx" ( pronounced dot -p-c-x)
extension. Two other common bit map formats are BMP and TIFF.

Big Charts & Trees biased reporting by Herb Frantz
Page 13
23 Mar 2003
In the old days we talked the local butcher out of a swatch of brown paper off that big roll he had in the
store. Or if in the construction trade we wrote of the back of old blue/white prints, nice 50% rag. Tried
the backside of wrapping (Xmas) paper but if was sort of thin and worn poorly. With plastic templates
and straight edges we laid out our ancestors. Sometimes we used blanks from the LDS that had multiple
generations on nice 25% rag paper. Mine were always embarrassing because of all the blank spaces.
After the advent of the PC we tried to do charts in LOTUS 123; which was satisfying but torturous. Then
came computer graphics; either 2D drafting or org chart packages like Visio and at last… genealogy
software. In desperation we tried photocopying together family one page images on slippery photocopy
paper with cellulose tape that changed to crumbs and rigid yellow strips respectively.
Today, almost all packages can generate very large charts. Ancestor, Descendant, Fan, Standard, All-inOne, Bow Tie and a host of variations. If you are graphically oriented they provide a simple but powerful
presentation of information that can even include pictures. They are easy to understand and can contain
almost as much information as you wish, including pictures. But it isn’t necessarily easy or cheap to get
it to paper (or even Mylar and laminated if you wish).
How
Each package has its peculiarities and so does each method of printing. We’ll focus on Family Tree
Maker since it is the most common. The are cautions along the way.
Are you running on a Windows 95 / 98 / ME operating system? If you are, then there is a Bill Gate's
imposed GDI scaling limit of about 28ft 4in where charts do poorly. If your chart is larger than this then
you will need to print this chart on a Win NT/ 2000/ XP box.
If you are already on a Win NT / 2000 / XP operating system then there is probably a problem with your
printer driver. Make sure that you have the latest version of it. This problem can sometimes be alleviated
if you are printing at high resolution under some special circumstances; try lowering the resolution to see
whether that improves the situation. In simple terms if the chart is real big or detailed it may take extra
work to get it out.
Therefore:
Caution #1 If it’s real big it may not be quite so easy.
Caution #2 ALWAYS install and use the most current printer driver.
Caution #3 The amount of System Memory on your PC may limit the size of a BIG chart/tree.
We won’t talk about 8 ½ by 11 paper and cutting and pasting.
FTM and Big Charts/Trees
Most important is to try on screen variations of what you want to capture. This takes but minutes, is
comfortable and involves no particular effort. Once you have your image think about it’s presentation;
wide and long?, very wide and short?, long and skinny?.
Generally at Print shops 36” is the max width they handle. But remember in your planning you can put
several 36” strips together side-by-side. There are some quirks too. A Kinko’s nearby has a beautiful
OCE 36” wide Black & White printer. Specs say it will print an image 109” long. But Nobody in
Kinko’s knew to do that as their LAN based system has it set to 48” long. So I print 48” long pieces and
tape them together. If you don’t know that kind of thing in advance your FTM output may print on only
48” of a 109” piece of paper @$1 sqft. Each Kinko’s may have a different big printer and some also have
color.
Volume 19 Number 2 (N0. 98)
THE NOTEBOOK
Page 14
In FTM watch out for back ground color. If you have a background color the Black & White printer will
change it to grayscale and print a grayish background one dot at a time and it will take a long time. It
may not be very readable either.
Don’t print smaller than 6 font, although you can go down to 4 font on some machines and printer drivers.
Your eyes aren’t that good.
Ask for help, they give good guidance, suggestions, but sometimes you need to talk with the Asst. Mgr or
a techie, not the Greeter at the door.
One solution - Kinkos http://www.kinkos.com/
Kinkos File Prep Tool –download or get floppy at Kinkos store
It is a customized pdf format that they convert into their system. Trouble free.
Print to the Kinkos File Prep “printer” (*.kdf) to a floppy or ZIP (if big) or CDROM if really gigantic.
Better yet:
Find the printer you will use at Kinko’s, get a encapsulated EPS printer drive for it and do printer setup
for it the way you want. Print to that and take it in on removable media. OR
Print to *.pdf and take to Kinkos. They load it to their system (you can ask to see a preview) and send it
to a printer. Viola! you have a really big chart (some cutting and pasting maybe required).
Other Places
There are many places to explore to create a chart.
Graphics - 60 inch wide and how long? http://www.genealogygraphics.com/
Ancestor Charts – a commercial service that prints (32"X60") of your 6 generation pedigree charts
including photos. Just send your completed GEDCOM file.

Kinkos File Prep Tool –download or get floppy at Kinkos store
It is a customized pdf format that they convert into their system. Trouble free.
Print to the Kinkos File Prep “printer” to a floppy or ZIP
Better yet:
Find the printer you will use at Kinko’s get a encapsulated EPS printer drive for it and do printer setup for
it the way you want. Print to that and take it in.
Costs:
Costs vary widely and some judicious research on your part can save some bucks. If the service you
chose has a fixed format (i.e. a 9 generation GedCom) it will be a flat rate based on Color or Black &
White.
A print shop for Black & White can range around $1 per square foot. Color maybe $3 to $4 per square
foot. You can also get it laminated, printed on Mylar or even clear film.
For posterity:
Don’t leave it in sunlight or store on the radiator.
Store it rolled loosely if possible.

The Baltimore Archive for Family Photography
Author: Dr. Nicole Herz
Members of the Baltimore County Genealogical Society understand
that family history, and in particular the proper documentation
of family history, is of vital importance to individual and
community identities. Local history should not be dictated by
political campaigns or commercial interests, but ought to be
constructed and celebrated by local residents who have lived
through changing times and varied experiences.
Using a grant from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship
Foundation, I have begun establishing a new Archive for Family
Photography in the Special Collections Department at the
University of Maryland, Baltimore County. I am looking for
volunteers of all backgrounds who would be willing to share
their memories and experiences for the benefit of future
students and scholars researching Baltimore’s history and the
history of local photography.
Volunteers and I meet one-on-one to discuss a personal
photography collection, during which time I enter all available
information about individual photographs into my notes. Upon
completing the interview, each entry gets transferred to a
formatted worksheet with all the information. Volunteers have
the option of donating digital reproductions of their
photographs to the Archive, and will be entitled to a personal
copy of the documentation we created together.
Having just completed my Doctorate in History with a issertation
on family photography, I continue to be fascinated by old
photographs and the stories they commemorate. My hope is that
in the process of participating in this project, Baltimore
residents of all stamps will realize just how important they and
their ancestors have been to the history and culture of the
region.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the
Archive, or to set up a meeting. The only criteria for
volunteers is that they possess old photographs (dating approx.
1840-1980),and a personal history in the Baltimore area.
Tel: 410-455-6744 (MW afternoons) or 410-455-2353 (M-F 9am-5pm).
Email: [email protected] Dr. Nicole Herz
I urge you not to dismiss your photographs or your memories, but
instead to share them with those who are sincerely interested!

THE NOTEBOOK
Poem - Family History
Many many years ago
when I was twenty three,
I got married to a widow
who was pretty as could be.
This widow had a grown-up
daughter who had hair of red.
My father fell in love with her,
And soon the two were wed.
This made my dad my son-in-law
And changed my very life.
My daughter was my mother,
For she was my father's wife.
To complicate the matters worse,
Although it brought me joy,
I soon became the father
Of a bouncing baby boy.
My little baby then became
A brother-in-law to dad.
And so became my uncle,
Though it made me very sad.
For if he was my uncle,
Then that also made him brother
To the widow's grown-up daughter
Who, of course, was my step-mother.
Father's wife then had a son,
Who kept them on the run.
And he became my grandson,
For he was my daughter's son.
My wife is now my mother's mother
And it makes me blue.
Because, although she is my wife,
She is my grandma too.
If my wife is my grandmother,
Then I am her grandchild.
And every time I think of it,
It simply drives me wild.
For now I have become
The strangest case you ever saw.
As the husband of my grandmother,
I am my own grandpa.

ROADS IN BALTIMORE COUNTY, 1693-1765 by Pat Melville
As usual for the colonial period, information about roads in Baltimore County appears as short
entries in the court minutes, as recorded through 1756 in (Proceedings) in series C400. The
books contain the administrative and judicial minutes and the recorded criminal and civil
proceedings of the county court.
Normally the clerks placed the minutes at the beginning of the record for each court term,
followed by proceedings of the cases being heard. Beginning in 1755, the clerks recorded the
minutes separately in (Minutes) in series C386. Both series were sampled for the availability of
notations about roads. Records for 1726-1727, 1748-1749, 1752-1753, and 1764 are not extant.
Also consulted was Henry C. Peden, Jr., Baltimore County Overseers of Roads, 1693-1793
(Westminster: Family Line Publications, 1992). The author transcribed from the minutes the
names of overseers appointed by the court along with associated descriptions of the roads.
The first entry concerning roads involved the appointment of Thomas Hooker as an overseer in
place of George Norman in November 1693. At the same session, Edward Boothby was
presented for failure to work on the roads.
Initially, the appointment of overseers was based on a hundred or part of a hundred, such as the
upper or lower portion. Gradually, the geographical descriptions became more specific. In
November 1709, the justices appointed Henry Butler, a carpenter, as overseer for the area from
Gwins Falls to Jones Falls and the back roads between the falls. By 1728, when the first full list
of roads was recorded, the court assigned a specific group of roads to each official. The number

of overseers and, by extension, groups of roads grew from fifteen in 1728 to fifty-eight in 1754 and then
to seventy nine in 1763.
These road lists appear regularly throughout the court minutes and thus provide a fairly comprehensive
list of public roads over time. Descriptive examples include:
•
•
•
From the end of Edward Hall's plantation to the Red Lyon Bridge where the old church stood, then
over the long bridge to St. George's Church, and then to Rev. Stephen Wilkinson's at the glebe
Long Calm of Gunpowder Falls to Edward Riston's plantation at Garrisons Ridge
From Jones Quarter to the Iron Worksand the Indian Road out of that road to Gwins Falls, from Jones
Road to Gists Mill, from the Lower Wading Place of the Main Falls of Patapsco to the Second
Wading Place of Gwins Falls, from the Fording Place of Davis Run to Moales Point, from the Iron
Works to William Hammond's, from the Lower Fording Place of Gwins Falls to Moales Point, and
the Ragland Roads to Moales Point.
The overseer system of road maintenance sometimes failed to function properly. Overseers might neglect
their duties, or taxpayers might forget to provide labor. In 1745, David Thomas complained about the lack
of an overseer for almost two years for the roads from Ignatius Wheeler's to Thomas Bond, Sr.'s and from
William Grafton's to the quarter of Thomas Bond, Jr. to Jacob Bull's mill. Thomas nominated William
Grafton, Sr., Daniel Preston, and Benjamin Colegate. The court selected Preston and added two more
roads to his jurisdiction - from Thomas' quarter along the north side of Deer Creek to William Grafton's
and from the head of the race ground between Rigdon's and Robert Clark's old place to Isaac
Butterworth's.
Other petitions pertained to the establishment of new roads, alteration of routes, and obstructions. In
1717, Thomas Hughs requested a road to his house from Patapsco Ferry Landing through the plantation
of Nicholas Fitsimonds, and the court agreed. In August 1717 the justices again ordered that this road be
cleared, but not until the last day of November. The reason for the postponement of work was not given.
The inhabitants of My Ladys Manor in 1742 asked for and received a road through the manor to connect
with the main road to Joppa.
Through a grant from Lord Baltimore, Thomas Cresap operated a ferry over the Susquehanna River
between Conjaulagh and Blew Rock. In 1733 he petitioned for a road from his house to Peter Hance's.
The justices granted the request, and made Cresap the overseer to clear it along the "connestage" road
with alterations as needed.
For several years, county residents on the north side of Deer Creek tried to obtain a road from the late
Col. Rigbie's to the Susquehannah Ford, commonly called the Bald Frier Landing. The court had
approved the road, but the route remained uncleared. In August 1756, the inhabitants filed a new petition,
stressing additional urgency, especially with a ferry being kept across from the landing where a store has
been built. The road was needed for taking crops to market and for travel to Lancaster. The petitioners
suggested a different route - from the Chapel adjoining John Dunn's land and continuing to near the house
of John West and then down the river. The justices designated three persons to lay out the road and file a
report, and approved their plan in November.
Citizens could clear their own roads, sometimes with permission in advance or approval after the fact.
Samuel Howell had cleared a road through his plantation from the main road leading to Susquehannah
Lower Ferry and wanted the court to accept it as being more convenient and dryer than the existing low
and swampy road. Dr. Charles Carroll had promised to clear, at his own expense, a new road from his
mill race on Gwinns Falls to the main road leading from Baltimore Town to the falls at a small run near
Charles Ridgeley's. The court appointed two men to view the road upon its completion and accept it as a
public road if meeting specifications.

When roads interfered with farm operations, the land owners usually petitioned for realignment of the
routes. George Ogg, in 1710, requested a route change before a road was cleared because it was marked
to go through his corn and wheat fields without his input. The justices had ordered Henry Butler to realign
the Garrison Road to Patapsco. The court agreed to reconsider the route and appointed three men to
consult with the inhabitants of the area.
Through disuse or neglect roads became overgrown and obstacles to travel. With enough demand the
court would order such roads reopened. In June 1755 Richard Johns was appointed overseer to open the
old Quaker Road from William Perkin's ferry to the road leading from Durbin's old plantation to the
Susquehanna lower ferry. Isaac Wood was assigned the part from where it intersected the road from
Durbin's old plantation to the Susquehanna lower ferry along Thomas Horner's land to the main road at
John Critchet's.
Petitions, court orders, lists of roads, and appointments of overseers taken together provide a firm basis
for an analysis of surface transportation in colonial Baltimore County which then included the present
counties of Carroll and Harford.

HUNDREDS OF BALTIMORE COUNTY by Pat Melville
Encountered during the review of the minutes of the Baltimore County Court for entries about roads were
court orders for the division of hundreds, the administrative units within the county, predecessors of
election districts. The entries are being offered as examples of unexpected treasures to be found in the
records of routine business of government. The boundaries of most hundreds in Maryland seldom were
described in state or county records. In November 1755 the Baltimore County justices divided Soldiers
Delight Hundred into three hundreds, now part of Carroll County:
•
Lower Soldiers Delight Hundred. The division line to run along the Indian Road, which comes across
from Back River Upper Hundred near Dutton Lane, Sr., to the residence of James Dawkins on the
main falls of Patapsco, then down the falls to Patapsco Upper Hundred.
•
Delaware Hundred. The north division line to begin where the old Indian Road crossed the main falls
of Patapsco at the residence of James Dawkins and to follow the Indian Road to the Frederick County
line.
•
Pipe Creek Hundred. To include all of the county (not included in Middle River or Back River Upper
Hundreds) north of the old Indian Road.
At the same court session Middle River Upper Hundred was divided into two parts by a line from the
mouth of Black Run to the upper fork of Gunpowder Falls at Nehemiah Hick's land. The area northwest
of that line was named North Hundred.
In November 1761, the court split Baltimore Town Hundred into two parts, with Jones Falls as the
division line. The area west of the line was called Baltimore Town West Hundred, and to the east
Baltimore Town East Hundred.
An examination of the minutes not sampled for road information could reveal additional descriptions of
the boundaries of hundreds.

United States Census Verification Project Federal Census 1900-1930
Sponsored by Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS)
The Federation of Genealogical Societies initiated the United States Census Verification Project to
correctly identify the Enumeration Districts on each roll of microfilm provided by the National Archives
and Records Administration (NARA). The goal is to review every roll of microfilm from the 1900, 1910,
1920, and 1930 census. This project was originally started by the St. Louis County Library and the St.
Louis Genealogical Society.
Census Verification Project
Ruth Ann (Abels) Hager, CGRSSM, CGISM
Reference Specialist, Special Collections Department
St. Louis County Library, St. Louis, Missouri
Sometimes, locating an Enumeration District (ED) in the 1880, or 1900-1920 U.S. Federal Census is easy.
But then, there are other times when, for no apparent reason, it can be an exercise in frustration – even for
the experienced researcher. The film box label tells where an ED should be on the film, but sometimes, the
ED isn’t there.
Why We Started The Project
The Census Verification Project at St. Louis County Library (SLCL) was started because librarians in our
department noted an excessively high failure rate among researchers working with the St. Louis 1910
census films – even with a clearly readable soundex or miracode reference. Staff and patrons gathered
cryptic notes about various rolls of film, and these notes showed what the problem was. The order in which
the EDs were listed on the film box labels was not always the order in which they appeared on the
microfilm. While this was a problem for any researcher, it was devastating for beginners. When a
researcher did ask for help, it could easily take a staff member thirty minutes or more to locate the desired
census record.
Trying to navigate a census roll by the incorrect label was like trying to follow a road map that was not
drawn correctly. The result was a disoriented researcher "chasing themselves in the circles."
What We Did
In January 2000, the Special Collections Department of SLCL, with the help of the St. Louis Genealogical
Society (StLGS) Library Volunteers, began a Census Verification Project to produce corrected film box
labels for the St. Louis census films.
Initially, the problem was thought to be another side effect of the "St. Louis divorce." The divorce
occurred in 1876 when the city of St. Louis voted to become an independent city, thus separating itself
from St. Louis County. This city/county split, with both sharing the same name, has caused confusion ever
since.
The project began with the 1910 census rolls because that year had the most obvious and serious problems.
The volunteers checked each page of the 15 microfilm rolls for both St. Louis City and County.
Two people checked each roll, independent of each other, and completed standard forms recording
what they found.
A third person compared the results and resolved any discrepancies.
New labels were produced based on the results.
The corrected labels for 1880 and 1900 – 1920 were submitted to NARA (National Archives and Records
Administration) and tables showing before and after label information were posted on the Special
Collections Web site at www.slcl.lib.mo.us/slcl/sc/sc-stlcensus.htm.
After the 1910 phase of the project was completed, we studied the results. There was a repetitive pattern in
the listing of EDs for most of the rolls with problems. This pattern also appeared in roll-by-roll information
for other rolls in other states in the 1910 NARA census microfilm catalog. The out-of-order problem went
beyond St. Louis. Spot checks were made and similar problems were found with rolls from the following
areas:

Page 5
Los Angeles County, California
Litchfield County, Connecticut
Cook County, Illinois
Middlesex County, Massachusetts
Baltimore (city), Maryland
New York County, New York
Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania
Davidson County, Tennessee
Dallas County, Texas
It was now apparent that the problem was not limited to St. Louis census films.
What We Found
Thirteen of the fifteen 1910 St. Louis rolls needed significant changes to their labels. The content of which
EDs were on each film was always correct. The changes were needed to show the EDs on the labels in the
same order as they appeared on the films. Changes to the 1880, 1900, and 1920 labels were also needed
but were less extensive.
The project further showed that in the 1910 census, thirty five ED numbers were duplicated in BOTH the
city and the county. This was permissible because, due to the city/county split, there were separate political
entities. The city/county duplication of ED numbers was also found in the 1880, 1900, and 1920 rolls. For
researchers, many of whom have never heard of the city/county split, this duplication was a major
obstacle.
Probably the most decisive finding of the project was the importance of adding the volume numbers to the
labels. Even with the duplicated ED numbers, the addition of the volume numbers to the labels enable
researchers to select the correct St. Louis film, easily and quickly – on the first try.
We also learned that stamped page numbers are relative to the bound volume of census sheets. A single
roll of film may contain
Part of a census volume
All of a census volume
As many as three complete volumes
Like a published book, the first page of each volume is numbered page one. If a researcher knows the roll
and page number for a census entry – and the roll contains three volumes – does the page refer to the first
volume, the second one, or the third one? How many genealogists, unaware of the existence of more than
one volume on that roll, locate the designated page number in the first volume, do not find their ancestor,
and walk away muttering about a typo?
Before and After Examples
Two examples of out-of-order EDs are shown below. The problem illustrated in the first before and after
example, is fairly easy to notice and predict. The second example becomes apparent only when someone
has difficulty with the film or the problem is found in a verification project.
Roll 820 previously listed ED 476, higher numbered and by itself, at the end of the listing. The second box
below shows that ED 476 is really located in the front part of the film, between EDs 293 and 294.

Roll 809 includes EDs 122-132, which the old label showed as being at the very end of the film. As
indicated by the second box below, those EDs are actually situated early in the film and are the very first
range of St. Louis EDs, rather than the second range.

[Revised Apr 2000]
What We Gained
The corrections have benefited patrons, volunteers, and staff. Staff members constantly stress to
researchers the importance of selecting the correct roll of film based on the volume number listed on their
soundex or miracode listing. To further help patrons, our revised labels have the volume numbers printed
in bright red. Between directions from staff, and the bright red volume numbers, patrons no longer have
problems selecting the correct film nor do they have problems locating that ED on the film.
The saved time this represents is especially important for the genealogists, often from a distance, who has
a set time to spend at a specific research facility. If the time needed to find a census entry exceeds their
available time frame, they leave empty handed and frustrated.
The volunteers especially benefited as the page by page checking expended their knowledge of the census.
It was amazing to find out how often and in what ways census takers failed to follow instructions. Several
volunteers decided to try one more time to locate ancestors they previously thought were skipped by the
census taker.
With many research facilities having shorter hours and reduced staff, it becomes even more important to
help genealogists be an independent as possible.
Conclusion
The Bureau of the Census microfilmed the 1880 and 1900-1920 census prior to the National Archives
receiving custody of the records. NARA inherited the out-of-order problem and includes a cautionary note
in the introduction of the each microfilm catalog covering these years. Revised editions of the catalogs
have included corrections submitted by patrons, but the task of correcting the labels was far beyond what
NARA’s staff could handle.
This project’s goal was to produce more user-friendly labels. Based on what we learned form the project,
that meant adding volume numbers as well as correcting out-of-order and other minor problems. We feel
the result helps genealogist become more independent and more successful.

Maryland Census Indexes Online
Two weeks ago I wrote about Nevada 1860-1920 census records that just became available online.
Newsletter reader Michael John Neill sent a message:
I saw the Nevada listing you recently had. The Maryland State Archives has several census
indexes online at their site:

Thank you, Michael. I took a look at the site provided by the Maryland State Archives. It does look good.
The following Maryland census indexes are available online:
• 1776 (Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Caroline, Dorchester, Frederick, Harford, Prince George's,
Queen Anne, and Talbot Counties)
• 1778 (Caroline, Charles, and Queen Anne's Counties)
• 1870 (Allegany, Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Calvert, Caroline, Carroll, Cecil, Charles, Dorchester,
Frederick, Harford, Howard, Kent, Montgomery, Prince George's, Queen Anne's, St. Mary's,
Somerset, Talbot, Washington, Wicomico, and Worcester Counties and Baltimore City)
• 1880 (Anne Arundel County only)
These are indexes only. If you find an ancestor in this online database index, you will then want to see the
full original record, either at the State Archives in Maryland or on microfilm available elsewhere.

Invasion of Privacy by a Web Site
AnyBirthday.com allows you to search a free database of well over 135 million records for the birth date
of almost anyone in the United States. I went to that site and started testing it. Not only did I find my own
date of birth, but I also found the birth dates of almost everyone else that I tried. Of course, I had to try to
find the exact birth date of my great-great-grandfather who was born around 1810. Unfortunately, this site
doesn't have records back that far. Most of the records contained in their database are for living
individuals.
I find it a bit disturbing that my own birth date, along with about ten others that I checked on, are
available to anyone who wants to know this information and has access to the Internet. Does this seem a
bit scary and invasive to anyone else?
Many people will be horrified at the thought that their dates of birth are available online. However, let’s
look at this privacy "issue" for a minute. There is really nothing new here. Birth records have always been
public domain data in the United States, and I believe the same is true for Canada. I am not sure about
other countries, so I will focus only on the U.S. Not only have birth records always been freely available,
but so have property records and (in some states) driver’s license databases. Did you ever buy or sell a
house? Your name and address are available to anyone who cares to look at real estate transaction data.
Of course, these are not the only sources of public domain information. You may also be listed in any of a
number of professional and personal databases. For instance, I have a pilot’s license; my name, age, and
address are available on several Internet databases that publish data released by the Federal Aviation
Administration. This information even says that I possess a third-class medical certificate, which gives
some indication of my state of health. My ham radio license information is also listed publicly, along with
my home address and my age, at a number of ham radio sites. The sites listing my ham radio information
obviously got their information from the Federal Communications Commission.
The list grows and grows. Again, there is nothing new here. Many sources of data have been available for
more than one hundred years. The local town clerk certainly will give out my name and birth date to
anyone who asks and pays the fee. My name and home address was published in the printed directory
called the Radio Amateurs’ Callbook back in 1960, when I obtained my first ham radio license. The same
was true a few years later, when I earned my pilot’s license; my name, age and home address were soon
freely distributed, available to anyone who cared to look. I know that this information was published
because I soon received lots of junk mail from companies that sold pilots’ supplies.
The amount of personal information being made available today is merely a continuation of longstanding
practices. The only difference is the convenience afforded by new technology. Now anyone can find this
information with very little effort, while in years past they had to work a bit harder to find this data.
Volume 19 Number 3 (No. 99)
THE NOTEBOOK
Page 8
As I think more and more about this concern, I am starting to change my mind. The high tech world in
which we live has brought us many convenience s. As genealogists, we all appreciate the many, very
convenient sources of data that we have. The public domain data that we look at on the Internet is the
same data that was always available by other means. The difference is that today we no longer have to
write letters or travel thousands of miles to view original source documents. We can now stay at home or
travel to nearby libraries and Family History Centers to access data online, on CD-ROM, or on microfilm
and microfiche. I hope we never return to the "old days" of genealogy research. Yet, like most other new
technologies, this is a double-edged sword. Others can find information about me as easily as I can find
information about others.
The book, Maximum Security: A Hacker's Guide to Protecting Your Internet Site and Network, Second
Edition, says, "Technology is rapidly changing our society and personal privacy is disappearing in the
process. The Internet will only facilitate that process."
My favorite quote, however, comes from Sun Microsystems CEO, Scott McNealy. At a Sun
Microsystems press event, Mr. McNealy was asked about privacy issues. "Get over it," McNealy told
reporters and analysts. "You have no privacy anyway."

BOOK REVIEW by Kenneth E. Zimmerman
“The Maryland State Archives Atlas of Historical Maps, 1608-1908” by Edward C. Papenfuse and
Joseph M. Coale III, Baltimore: The John Hopkins University Press, April 2003, hardcover, 208 pp.
$69.00 w/o slipcase; $100.00 w/slipcase.
This publication is a revision of “The Hammond-Harwood House Atlas of Historical Maps of
Maryland, 1608-1908 (1982) which is out of print and a rare, hard to find and valuable book for map and
book collectors. This new revised edition contains full-color reproduction of more then 250 historical
maps utilizing the latest digital imaging and printing technology. Some of the same maps were in the
original publication. Just the additional maps are worth owning the book. Over 80% of the maps were
scanned at Maryland State Archives. One can obtain copies of these maps to a size suitable for framing.
The maps are from some of the collections at the Maryland State Archives, Maryland Historical Society,
Baltimore City Archives and Library of Congress. Maps are from the Willard Hackerman private
collection; and they borrowed maps from the late Mrs. William T. Snyder. Plus maps from the fine
collection of the Russ Morrison and Owen Henderson’s superb Huntingfield Collection. The publication
states the following information on each map where applicable: author of the map, title of map, date when
map was drawn or originally published, its owning institution and MSA#.
This book contains many county wall maps that have never been published before. The book is a must
for anyone who loves maps and Maryland history. A genealogist doing Baltimore area research should
especially want to look at these maps:
• Figure 108 “J.C. Sidney, Map of the City and County of Baltimore, 1850, Library of Congress,
MSA SC 12131-468.”
• Figure 109 “Robert Taylor, Map of the City and County of Baltimore, 1857, Library of Congress,
MSA SC 1213-1-470.”
• Figure 151 “James Slade, Plan of Baltimore & Vicinity showing proposed Routes for bring
Water…., 1853, Baltimore City Archives, MSA SC 5339-7-28.
These maps show names of land/ property owners. But, you will need to look at the original map to
read the names. Some similar maps are shown for other Maryland Counties, too.
Some of the maps I have in my private collection are in this publication. With Maryland maps more
difficult to find it is great to see maps I own and other maps preserved in this publication and captured as
electronic images. One will enjoy looking at pictures of these maps, but also reading the historical
explanations and context. One can purchase this publication at MSA or a book dealer.

H. Furlong Baldwin Library Opens to Public Library Facilities
Doubles and User Services Added
The H. Furlong Baldwin Library is now open at the Maryland Historical Society (MdHS), located at 201
West Monument Street in the Mount Vernon Cultural District of Baltimore, after four months of
renovation and features greatly expanded and enhanced research facilities.
The Library's expanded and renovated facility now occupies three floors and includes technological
enhancements to the beautifully restored early twentieth-century structure. "Greater space allows us to
provide better service to our patrons," explains Deputy Director for the Library, Bea Hardy. "In the new
Library, there are larger and more comfortable areas where people can conduct research, better storage
facilities that allow library staff to research and retrieve collections more effectively and efficiently, and
completely new areas for patrons to enjoy-such as two galleries devoted solely to the exhibition of
Library collections, and the Student Research Center for History."
The new Library occupies three levels of the Thomas & Hugg Building and includes many new patron
areas and services. Among the most significant changes taking place are:
The expanded entrance orients visitors to the Library and its extensive collections with a new information
desk, welcome area, and computer reference center that complements the wireless computer access
throughout most of the Library spaces.
The largest area, the Walter Edgar Rhodes Reading Room (formerly the Main Reading Room), is restored
to resemble its original 1917 appearance with improvements including restored historic light fixtures,
wireless computer networking, and greatly expanded seating.

Maryland State Archives Letter to BCGS Inc.
Elaine 0 Zimmerman, President of BCGS requested Dr. Ed Papenfuse, State Archivist & Commissioner
of Land Patents to provide a status on the Maryland State Archives project as BCGS has budgeted $1,000
this year for a donation. The members need to know what is happening with the project.
Volume 19 Number 4 (No. 100)
THE NOTEBOOK
Page 4
Dear Elaine Zimmerman, BCGS President:
In response to the first $500 donation made to the Maryland State Archives Fund by the BCGS at the time
I spoke to the group at the 25th BCGS Anniversary, and with the promise of additional support, we have
imaged all the WPA inventory indexes for BA and BC. They are described on our web site at two
separate locations:
http://mdsa.net/msa/refserv/coagsere/html/bc.html (CE40 - (City Papers, Index), 1756-1938, CE20 (Miscellaneous Court Papers, Index), 1852-1892)
http://mdsa.net/msa/refserv/coagsere/html/ba.html (CE19-Miscellaneous Court Papers, Index), 17291851)
Thus with the help given and promised by the BCGS all volumes will be accessible as readable images
off our web site by the time you update the Society on our progress.
With what remains of the grant we will begin to place all the volumes in a searchable environment. We
have one volume set up that way for you to view and test:
http://www.mdarchives.state.md.us/megafile/msa/coagser/cel/ce19/000000/000001/html/ce19-10001.html (be sure to enter the whole URL without breaks)
Because it is a test volume, you may be asked for a user name (aaco) and password (aaco#)
It will cost us approximately $800 to place all remaining 14 volumes fully searchable on line. The
remaining $200 would go towards scanning and linking and demonstrate what could be done if we had
sufficient funds to scan all the indexed records in this fashion
For example, last December we had a patron who with out telling the staff, used the on line electronic
index to locate a document he wanted copied. We had to look it up in the paper index (we had not yet
linked our list of the paper indexes to the electronic index, find the box, the index related to(there is a
separate inventory of the originals on line at.
http://www.mdarchives.state.md.us/msa/refserv/coagser/ba/html/ba0001.html
Because he supplied the year and the document number from the electronic index (1821-1899), locating
the document was relatively easy (it was where it was supposed to be, MSA C -53. It was scanned and
printed out and sent to the patron. Imaging how much better it would be if you could go to:
http://www.mdarchives.state.md.us/megafile/msaJcoagsere/ce1/ce19/000000/000001/html/ce19-10001.html
Look up the name, in this case Margery Manning and Negro Richard, and be able to hyperlink directly
from there to the document itself. Try the search and you will see what I mean. At present you can find
Margery Manning easily, but cannot get to the document from there:
http://209.116.251.240/msaref02/BCGS/msa_c_1_53-0299.html
In summary:
We have gone a great way towards making all the WPA inventories for BA and BC available on line and
to date have made one volume completely searchable by matching the original $500 donation with the
equivalent of approximately twice as much staff and computer time. For the new grant, we propose to
finish making all the indexes fully searchable on line and provide a sample volume in which all the
images of the originals are linked to the index entries.
Volume 19 Number 4 (No. 100)
THE NOTEBOOK
Page 5
Our timetable for the latter would be to have all the imaged books available on line by Christmas 2003
and the originals for one volume scanned and linked by Spring 2004. Searchable volumes would be on
line as they are completed and edited.
We would welcome any additional funds towards bringing more originals on line. A reasonable estimate
for doing that is approximately $.35 an image in a mass production mode. Copying documents
individually is more time consuming and patrons are charged at our posted rates.
By funding this project, the BCGS would be granted the privilege of free access to the searchable indexes
on line. At some point, with the way budget cut are going, we may well have to otherwise charge for such
index access.

What is the Works Progress Administration (WPA)?
The largest and most important of the New Deal cultural programs was the Works Progress
Administration (WPA), a massive employment relief program launched in the spring of 1935 and the
beginning of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s (FDR's) "Second New Deal," as his second term it came to be
known
Persistent unemployment was a continuing concern, and Roosevelt felt that simply doling out relief
payments would mean "spiritual and moral disintegration destructive to the national fibre." {3} On May
6, 1935, the Works Progress Administration was established under the direction of long-time FDR aide
Harry Hopkins. The WPA philosophy was to put the unemployed back to work in jobs which would serve
the public good and conserve the skills and the self-esteem of workers throughout the U.S.
Federal One's Component Projects
The component projects of Federal One went about their work of defining national directions in a variety
of ways, as a summary of each project's main activities indicates:
•
The Federal Art Project
•
The Federal Music Project
•
The Federal Theatre Project
•
The Federal Writers Project
•
The Historical Records Survey: The smallest component of Federal One, the Survey employed
archivists to identify, collect and conserve historical records throughout the United States.
The concern for professional artists' employment dovetailed with the federal programs of the 1930s.
Chronic unemployment was the central and most persistent feature of the Depression: by 1932, estimates
of the total number unemployed ranged from 8 to 17 million workers -- this, at a time when the total U.S.
population was just 125 million. A variety of federal efforts were taken to address unemployment in
cultural fields.

BCGS Speaker Summary
September 28, 2003
BCGS Program Speaker was Dean Krimmel - Creative Museum Services, Exhibitions, Research,
Writing and Planning
Topic: Baltimore's Ellis Island: The B&O's Locust Point Immigration Facility,
1868- 1914
Baltimore is one of America’s forgotten ports of entry, its important role obscured by the overwhelming
(and well deserved) attention paid to New York’s Castle Garden and Ellis Island. Did you know that
Baltimore welcomed more than one million immigrants at its Locust Point facility?
Dean Krimmel’s richly illustrated lecture explored this little known chapter in Baltimore history and
deepens your appreciation and understanding of our immigrant ancestors. A Baltimore public historian
and curator for nearly 25 years, Krimmel is currently developing an exhibition at Locust Point’s
Immigration Gateway Heritage Park at Tide Point for the Baltimore Immigration Project (opening July
2004).
October 26, 2003
BCGS Program Speaker was Vernon Skinner, Jr.
Topic: Using Court Records
Orphans Court Proceedings contain a record of the proceedings of the orphans court in each county. In
addition to showing when wills and other documents were brought in to be recorded, these proceedings
may contain records of orphans being bound out as apprentices, or of guardians being appointed.
Sometimes in the period during and after the Revolutionary War, veteran of that conflict would appear in
the Orphans Court petitioning for financial aid.
The probate court of Maryland for the greater part of the colonial period was called the Prerogative Court
Appointments. The court handled the proving of wills, recording of administration of estate documents,
and hearing petitions. The care of orphans' estates became the responsibility of the county courts. After
1776, the Prerogative Court was abolished, and the office of Register of Wills was established in each
county.
One must look in to the makeup of the court records.
Records of Appointments
• Court Officer
• Overseer of Roads
• Voting for Sheriff
• Assessors
Record of Petitions
• Exemption for Assessment Tax- over age of 70; Legislators.
• Apprenticeship- The apprenticeship system came to Maryland from England during the colonial
period. It was a form of servitude, but the apprentice, unlike the slave and indentured servant,
could not be sold, assigned to another, or taken out of state. Nor was the individual listed as
Volume 19 Number 4 (No. 100)

personal property in estate inventories. Until 1794 the county courts handled apprenticeship
matters, after that the county orphans courts.
Guardianship
Servitude
Land Commission –original starting tracts of land
Licenses
Records of Suits
• Civil & Criminal – to includes appeals and pardons
• Bastardy Cases
• Jury Selections
• Depositions
• Equity Court: Court cases (files) classified as Equity include adoption records, divorces,
foreclosures, or civil disputes between two parties involving land or other property.
The above definitions were taken form the Maryland States Archives web site. The terms definitions
were not quoted by Vernon Skinner topic, but were added for explanation purposes only. The outline was
from Ken Zimmerman notes and Vernon Skinner overheads.

John F. Denny Inc. Collection at University of Baltimore Langsdale Library
1420 Maryland Ave. Baltimore, MD 21201 (410)837-4268.
Type of Record: Non-current expense and sales ledgers, journals, funeral service records, photographs,
promotional booklet, and indexes.
The funeral service records provide similar information as the journals, but often give more detailed
biographical information on the deceased such as: dates and place of birth and death, age, marital status,
occupation and employer, length of residence in Baltimore, parents full names and birthplace, date and
place of funeral services, officiating minister, cemetery and lot, name and address of informant, and
occasionally an outline of the newspaper funeral notice can be found on the reverse side of the sheet.
In 1848 William Armstrong and John Denny began an undertaking and furniture business in South
Baltimore. Armstrong & Denny were one of three similar establishments in the City. When William
Armstrong retired from the business he was succeeded by his son James W. Armstrong. Later Mr.
Denny's son, John F., along with James Armstrong's son-in-law, Milton H. Wagoner joined the firm. At
that time they changed the company's name to Armstrong, Denny & Co.
After the senior Denny died the business was incorporated and run by the founder's sons and Milton H.
Wagoner. In 1919 John F. Denny purchased his two partners interests and became sole owner changing
the name to John F. Denny, Inc. He continued to operate the business until his death on December 21,
1937. John F. Denny was 72 when he died and had been a funeral director for over half a century.
The John F. Denny Funeral Home, Inc. continued to be operated by members of the Denny family until
1970 when it ceased operation. The firm remained at its original location on the corner of Light and
Montgomery Streets during the entire 122 years of its existence.

DOWNS
GOODEN
Searching for THOMAS DOWNS who married GULIELMUS GOODEN on August 15, 1738 according
to St. George's Register. I have an official birth for Thomas in the year 1714 possibly in Baltimore
County. He also had two daughters whose births are listed in the same register (Mary in 1740 and
Elizabeth in 1742) I also know that he bought 125 acres of land in Baltimore County in 1747 from James
ilbert (Book e. folio 711( and that he sold the land in March 1761 to Thomas Mitchell (Book J, Folio 67).
He eventually moved West to the Redstone Creek area of Pennsylvania, where he left a will and died in
1783 in Westmoreland or Fayetter County. His son, Richard, eventually moved to Kentucky and is the
ancestor of a large number of DOWNS families who reside in Grayson County, Kentucky.
I am presently preparing a book for publication on my DOWNS family tree. I have been working hard,
but without success, to find out the names of the parents of my ancestor THOMAS DOWNS of Baltimore
County before I publish my book.

Atkinson, Dilworth, Martini, Shlissler, Rexroth, Schneider and Wild
I am looking for descendants of Atkinsons from the Baltimore area. I was born in Baltimore but now
live in Northern California: The surnames on the Atkinson side of my family are: Atkinson, Dilworth,
Martini, Shlissler, Rexroth, Schneider and Wild. My grandfather Adam Atkinson used to own a
furniture business Style-Kraft Furniture in Baltimore until approximately 1975. His father William Henry
Atkinson, and Williams father, George Atkinson were both butchers at the Lexington Market area. My
great grandfather William Oliver Dilworth was a bare knuckles boxer known as "Dummy Decker" as he
was a deaf mute boxer.
Should anyone have any connections again I would love to hear from them and ask that you give them my
information. Thank you for your time and consideration.

US FLANDERS FIELD MILITARY CEMETERY
Patrick Lernout lives in Waregem-Belgium at about one mile from the US Flanders Field military
cemetery. He is interested in the history of World War 1, so this cemetery special attention. I started to
write a book about the soldiers buried here and I am looking for information about all those men. The
book would be a great tribute for those young Americans, who gave their lives for the freedom of my
country. In the cemetery is a soldier called Matthew McGee. He was from Baltimore. He was killed in
action November 4, 1918. Another Maryland soldier is buried here: Cheston Galloway from Annapolis.
He was killed in action July 29, 1918. He would appreciate hearing from anyone who has information on
or access to their history, addresses, and photos please send.

Free Blank Maps
A tip regarding using government mapping sites and books to find blank maps to plot your own
ancestor’s migration paths. One suggestion was to make your own by tracing a map out of a book. But
once in a while you have to think outside the genealogy box and consider what may be available from
sources outside of those, which are commonly used by genealogists. Doing a web search for “blank
maps,” I came upon a wealth of sites offering free blank maps. One such site has blank maps in printable
versions of continents, countries, and U.S. counties. This site is aimed towards helping school children
but is perfect for genealogists too. It is called http://www.geography. about. corn.
If you want a wall-size map, you can take it to some copying service and have it enlarged
