Dear Friends -- can you please help publicize this worthwhile project on social media sites and to forward it to individuals, genealogy and historic societies? As it continues to expand, we have a growing need for volunteers. Thank you in advance for any help you can give! 

A joint venture between FamilySearch and the Maryland Archives to digitize Wills and Probate Records is well underway. Since June, thousands of documents spanning the mid-1800’s to 1940’s have been processed and imaged. Carroll County is almost completed, and we are ready to begin on Caroline & Baltimore counties and Baltimore City. Digitized images will be made be available at no cost at FamilySearch.org.  

Additional help is need for document prep work, which includes removing fasteners and flattening documents. An index is created as each document is prepared, which will make the records name-searchable immediately. Volunteers can work anytime between 8:30 & 4:30 on a day of their choice at the Archives building at 350 Rowe Boulevard in Annapolis. For additional information, contact fsmdvol@gmail.com and see http://fsmav.blogspot.com.
