FrederickRoots* exists to serve as a resource for researching the history of the African American families of Frederick County, Maryland. Particular emphasis is placed upon the small farming communities of the County. Over the years, our work has revealed that most of the families of these communities have their roots in slavery. A primary mission of this site is to trace those roots back to the first slave who was freed, identifying his or her owner, location, and documents of manumission**.

Laurel Cemetery (1852-1957) was Baltimore’s first non-sectarian cemetery for African Americans. A ‘safe’ estimate is that at least 5,000 burials occurred at this site during the years of its formal incorporation. However, more burials were likely as, before its incorporation, the site was used as a burial site for free and enslaved servants. The culmination of a student project, this video provides a brief explanation of the history and significance of this site. Watch and hear of Carroll County's connection to this cemetery.
