Washington County [Maryland] Historical Society Board President Evelyn Williams, a native Floridian, said the past few days — with Hurricane Matthew pounding the state’s eastern coast — weighed heavy on her mind.
Joined by supporters and local dignitaries, Williams and fellow historical society officials cut a ribbon to officially open the center, a first-of-its-kind resource for residents looking to trace their family lineage.
The event also served as a weekend kickoff for more family-friendly genealogical activities today and Sunday.
“It was a dream of the board of directors for about the last 18 months we’ve been working on this,” said Carol Miller-Schultz, a genealogist who teaches at Hagerstown Community College and is a historical society board member.
