Easton Library to Offer Program on Estate Planning for Genealogists

On Thursday, September 28, at 6:30 p.m., in the Easton branch of the Talbot County, longtime librarian-archivist Mary Mannix will give people who have researched their family’s genealogy the inside scoop on how to make sure all their work won’t be lost.  Speaking of such efforts, Mannix said, “You’ve spent years wondering what happened to all the things you know your ancestors must have recorded, the things that would have helped you so with your research.  Now it’s time to consider how to best preserve your accumulated facts, figures, and artifacts for future generations.”

Since 1998, Mannix has been the Maryland Room Manager of the C. Burr Artz Public Library of the Frederick County Public Libraries.  For eleven years she was the Library Director of the Howard County (MD) Historical Society.  She has also held positions at the Lilienfeld Library of The Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and the Maryland Historical Society.  She holds an MLS from the University of Maryland, College Park, and an MA in American History from the University of Delaware with a certificate in Museum Studies.  Mannix is very active in MARAC (the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference) and is in her fourth term as Vice Chair/Meetings Coordinator.  She also has been very involved in the History Section of RUSA and was the 2011 winner of ALA’s Genealogical Publishing Company Award for service to the profession.  In 2015 she was given the Martha Washington Medal from the Sergeant Lawrence Everhart Chapter of the Maryland Society of Sons of the American Revolution. She has taught genealogy librarianship at the University of Maryland and public history courses at Hood College.  She regularly gives presentations on a variety of local history and genealogy topics.

All library programs are free and open to the public.  Patrons do not need to pre-register to attend this lecture.  For more information, please call the library at 410-822-1626, or visit www.tcfl.org.
