General Meeting & Presentation: The (Underground) Railroad Runs Through Here by Janice Lovelace, Ph.D.

October 19 @ 1:00 pm

The Underground Railroad was a loosely organized way to assist people to leave enslavement in the South and find freedom in the Northern U.S. or in Canada pre-Civil War.  Do you have ancestors that might have been involved in the Underground Railroad? How do you find records of those who were involved?
