Have you lost an ancestor in Maryland? We recently received a research tip from one of our book vendors, Diane, from the Prince George’s County Genealogical Society of Maryland [PGCGS]. No one knows about researching in a geographic area like someone who lives in the area.
Diane says that after the Civil War, many young men left their farms in southern Maryland to find work in Washington, DC. When they died, most of the time their bodies were not shipped home. You will find their burials in Washington, DC.
