The Mary L. Cook Public Library in Waynesville, Ohio and Wilmington College in Wilmington, Ohio have partnered to host the 3rd Annual Quaker Genealogy and History Conference: Anti-Slavery: Taking a Risk for Freedom next Spring.  This will be a three day conference with many notable speakers.  Our research committee is also conducting local research to uncover more people who were involved in the anti-slavery movement and more sites.  We are concentrating on the area of the Bull Skin Trace along Ceasar's Creek (Waynesville, Harveysburg, Warren County and Clinton County area). The dates for the conference are April April 27th, Saturday April 28th and Sunday April 29th, 2007.  On Sunday participants will go on a tour of local anti-slavery/UGRR sites.  The Freedom Center/National Underground Railroad Museum in Cincinnati is also be involved in and supportive of the conference.  For more information, contact Karen Campbell, The Mary L. Cook Public Library,Waynesville, Ohio, campbeka@oplin.org, 1-513-897-4826.

F. Y. I.: GREAT NEWS!! We received official notification of the induction of the Mary L. Cook Public Library into the Freedom Station Affiliate Program of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati because of the research we have conducted for the last year and a half. The induction ceremony will be on Thursday April 19th, 2007 at 2:00 PM. They are inviting the library staff and our volunteer committee members to attend. We will also be participating in the launch of their new Freedom Stations Radio Station online.  You may want to check their website after the 19th to hear the program:  http://www.freedomcenter.org/freedomradio/.   Those of you in the area are quite welcome to attend the induction ceremony if you would like.

Im close to finishing the conference publication, Anti-Slavery: Taking a Risk for Freedom ~ Report of the Research Committee which is, at this point, 264 pages long.  There will be a lot to share on Saturday afternoon!! :)
