Our speaker for the evening is Rachel M. Frazier and she will present,
"Modern Court Records"
While many people use archival records to perform historical and genealogical research, the Maryland State Archives also holds a large number of modern court records required for legal purposes such as retirement, social security, pension, and expungement. This lecture will deal, not only with the complexities of these records (generally beginning in the 1960s and 1970s), but also with the significance of modern court records in social history, social justice, and quality of life.
Ms. Frazier serves as the Search Room coordinator for the Reference Department at the Maryland State Archives, helping to coordinate in-person services for historical and legal research as well as assisting through email.
