Please join us on Sunday, March 22, 2020, at 1:30 p.m., at the Pikesville Library’s meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville, when Diana and Davis Gardner present our next program: “Genealogy Resources at the Columbia Family History Center.”
Diana and Davis Gardner’s presentation will be an introductory “tour” of the Columbia Maryland Family History Center, showing you what resources will be available to you when you visit. They will also discuss the deep desire we all have to help our children and grandchildren know about their ancestors’ heritage and traditions and some ways we can instill or encourage their interest in family history.
Davis and Diana Gardner both began a life-long interest in genealogy while in university. At that time, they focused on documenting work their families had already done, and then slowly working to see what else they could learn. Davis spent his vocation years working first as a language analyst, then as a systems engineer, while Diana focused her time on their nine children. Family obviously continued to be a primary interest in their lives. More recently, Davis’s focus has been on learning genealogical computer tools, helping others, and improving documentation in FamilySearch. Diana is the Director of the Columbia Maryland Family History Center. Davis is an assistant director there and also teaches courses at Howard Community College.
The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied to JGSMD membership fee) after their first meeting. Please check our web site at www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location, and program of future meetings.

JGS Maryland has been reconstituted!
JGSMD had its initial meeting on Sunday August 18, 2013 to see if there was interest in the group's reconstituting. The turnout was overwhelming, with 31 people attending with only a few days' notice. Look forward to new programming over the next year!
