Call for papers: All lectures must relate to the movement and migration of people between Maryland and Virginia or reverse, including their environs (i.e., Pennsylvania or North Carolina). Lectures may relate to ethnic or religious movement through the states.
The conference committee is especially interested in the views of both genealogists and historians on this subject.

Brief speaker's biography (150 words or less)
Brief resume of recent lectures the speaker has given.
Each session will be limited to one hour. Presentations should include a brief ten-minute question-and-answer period. Camera-ready syllabus material (due 1 September 2005) will be required for each lecture. A syllabus will be distributed at the conference.
Each speaker will be limited to a maximum of three presentations; however, up to six proposals can be submitted. Lecturers will receive a limited compensation package of $300 per lecture (compensation package includes lecture fee, travel, expenses; no additional compensation is available)
