Our speaker on Wednesday, April 5 is Jennifer Stabler, who will describe “Lessons Learned from a 'Relocated' Cemetery: The Columbia Baptist/Simon Hill Cemetery in Bladensburg, Maryland.”
Jennifer is an archeologist with the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission. The African American cemetery she will be talking about was the subject of recent archeological work by the Maryland State Highway Administration prior to upcoming development of the site.
The "Lessons Learned" could be applied in other cases of cemetery relocation, an event encountered with some frequency in genealogical research in metropolitan Maryland and elsewhere.
Our meeting begins at 7 PM. Please mark your calendar now to join us then. Members will receive an email invitation with zoom link information a few days before the meeting. Guests may request an invitation by emailing email@example.com
