Partnerships

We would like to thank the following people and groups for making this work possible.

Locating People in the Past was made possible through a generous grant from the FIA-Deutsch Seed Grant Competition. We would like to thank the Future of Information Alliance, the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation, and especially like to thank the FIA Directors, Allison Druin, Ira Chinoy, and the FIA Coordinator Tetyana Lokot. Part of this work was also funded through a grant from the University of Maryland, College of Behavioral and Social Sciences Emerging Scholarís Program.

We would also like to thank the FIA partner organizations for whom our work is relevant, including the Library of Congress, the National Archives, and the State of Maryland.

We are also grateful to those who welcomed us on the Eastern Shore and encouraged our research into its past, including the Frederick Douglass Honor Society, Beverly and Richard Tilghman, and all of those descendants of Wye House and Talbot County.
