Maryland State Archives and Baltimore City Archives

Through collaboration with Dr. Robert Schoberlein, Director of the Baltimore City Archives and Dr. Edward Papenfuse, Retired Maryland State Archivist, our research on the Laurel Cemetery Project and the Lincoln Bible Project is conducted at the Baltimore City Archives.  BAAHGS volunteers can be found there five days weekly. We use laptops provided by the Maryland State Archives to access the death certificates for the Laurel Cemetery Project. These laptops give us direct access to the records in the state archives. The archives are also the site where the funeral home records are processed and stored.  In addition, BAAHGS staff members are perusing the city’s records identifying those relating to African Americans.
