The exploration of African American family histories and genealogies continues to grow at an exponential rate. This growth has led to an increase in the demand for research aids. For those who cannot travel to local courthouses or record depositories, this handy reference book makes these marriage records readily available. This record of marriages has been derived from the Maryland State Archives microfilm #MSA M 218. Entries are arranged alphabetically by the groom's surname and include (as available) the full name of the groom, with his age, marital status, occupation, and location if other than Kent County; the full name of the bride, with her age, marital status, occupation, and location if other than Kent County; marriage date; and date marriage was recorded.

8 The Daybook of Alexander Kennard 1785 and 1786 Chester Town, Maryland
Karon Kennard Tanner
2005, 6x9, paper, index, 164 pp, Heritage Books
In 1785-1786, the Customs House dry goods store functioned as a bank, post office, credit union, commodity exchange, freight and cargo shipper and handler, and community center. The daybook of Alexander Kennard contains the bookkeeper's original entries of debits and credits for the store recorded in date order. A wealth of genealogical data and socio-economic history of Maryland following the Revolutionary War are preserved on these pages. All the leading citizens and prominent families of Chestertown and Kent County transacted their business at the Customs House dry goods store. Wives and children are often mentioned; slaves and servants are designated to pick up goods. The Tanners have faithfully transcribed the handwritten pages exactly as they appear in the original, now fragile, daybook where Alexander Kennard recorded transactions in rich detail.
