March 3, 2024 – Lisa Woolfson – How to find a Needle in a Haystack Without Even Looking

Treasures, that’s what I call them. It’s those little pieces of information that we dig and dig for or those that show up unexpectedly are what keeps genealogists going back for more. You never know what you are going to find in the most unlikely of places. The beginning of this story starts at a house in Granite, Baltimore County, MD. Our second stop is the book table at the Baltimore County Genealogical Society. Next we will journey back in time to examine the exciting story of William Penn and his friend (my seventh great grandfather) William Buckman. The adventure ends up two graveyards in Carroll County, MD. You’ve probably been by them before and never knew of the deep American history that lies beneath the surface of those grounds.
