The next meeting of the Delmarva African American Historical & Genealogical Society will be held:

Saturday, February 23, 2013, at 10:00 am
@ the Dorchester County Historical Society
Cambridge, Maryland

For more information, contact Linda Duyer at 443-366-2451.


Tentative Agenda:
  • Building an online regional Resource and Surname Queries Listings
  • Overview of African American Geneology Resources of the Dorchester County Historical Society
  • Tony Burroughs @ the 2013 Harriet Tubman & UGRR Conference in Cambridge.  How might the Delmarva AAH&G Society celebrate his visit? 
   
Time has gone by since our first meeting of the Delmarva African American Historical & Genealogical Society.  The delay of a second meeting has been my own.  Although the first meeting, held at UMES in Princess Anne, was small and held in the busy month of October, we were fortunate to get a lot of input and suggestions from those who attended.  We are particularly grateful for participation by Noreen Goodson, Secretary of the Baltimore Chapter of the AAHGS.   For information about the Baltimore Chapter of the AAHGS, visit

A Great Start.....

The first meeting of the Delmarva African American Historical & Genealogical Society was a small but enthusiastic beginning.  October is a busy time for many, so we are particularly grateful that Noreen Goodson drove from Baltimore to attend, representing the Baltmore (Agnes Kane Callum) Chapter of the AAHGS.  She offered suggestions, ideas, and encouragement for our organization.

For those interested to learn more about the Baltimore AAGHS, visit their websites at either Baahgs.org or www.baahgs.wordpress.com.  

FYI -- The 2012 Baltimore Family History Workshop will be held Saturday, Oct. 13th at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Baltimore, at 120 Stemmers Run Road in Essex, Maryland.  The conference and workshops are free and sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Baltimore Maryland Stake.  For more information, visit www.BaltimoreFamilyHistoryWorkshop.org.

Topic:  What's in a Surname?  

Sharing Surnames is a good way to start to get to know one another and to let others know what we're researching.  Let's discuss how we can help one another.  See you there.


Kimberly Conway Dumpson is hosting the first meeting, at UMES.

We know not everyone can make it to this first meeting.  But keep in mind, there will be others soon, at different locations.  And you will be kept informed here of what we are forming.  Feel free to contact us for more information.  Contact Linda Duyer at 443-366-2451 or at lindaduyer1@yahoo.com.
