Do you have questions about your Maryland genealogy research? How to research Maryland State Archives records? Where you could find information about an enslaved ancestor? Or are you stuck in your research and have a “brick wall” question? Our archivists will try to help you answer all these questions and more.

For us to be able to best answer your question, please have your information/question as organized as possible with any specific names, dates, locations, records, and references needed to help us understand and answer your inquiry.

Depending on the nature and complexity of the inquiry, some questions may not be answered during this session. We will do our best to reply during the event, but some inquiries may require in-person assistance at the Maryland State Archives or from our Help Desk at msa.helpdesk@maryland.gov or 410-260-6487.

For any questions that we are not able to answer during the Virtual Brick Wall, our archivists are always available to assist you. You can contact our Help Desk (msa.helpdesk@maryland.gov or 410-260-6487) or visit the archives in person.
