Upcoming LWR Events

February 4, 2019 Finding Your Anti-Slavery Ancestors Broadly defined, an abolitionist supported the end of slavery in the U.S. Many people who had different views and strategies for accomplishing the goal fit that description. They could have lived over the long period of time from the writing of the constitution to the passage of post-Civil War constitutional amendments. We will consider what might predict your ancestors’ feelings on this matter such as their religion and location. Documents remain for us to find depending on the time and legality of their activities. Presented by Susan Well.
