Share Maryland History

The Maryland State Archives is  expanding their volunteer program, especially for Reference Services. Reference volunteers help provide access to Maryland’s historical records from its founding to recent years, and learn valuable skills regarding proper records handling, materials circulation, and local genealogy. However, they also encourage volunteers to get experience in other aspects of archives, such as document conservation, transcription, etc. There are also volunteer opportunities for court record research, preservation, imaging, online media and more.

The program is quite flexible and welcomes anyone who is eager to lend a hand from high school students to senior citizens.  You volunteer just once a week or nearly every day.
