Anti-Slavery/UGRR Conference in April 2007
« on: December 12, 2006, 12:43:07 pm »
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 this coming spring on the last weekend of the month of April.  This will be a three-day conference with many notable speakers. Please go to the Mary L. Cook Public Library web site, the Ohioana Room web page (http://www.mlcook.lib.oh.us/ohioana_roommary_l.htm), to download the schedule/registration form (PDF file) for more information about the topics and speakers.  

We have also arranged with the Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, Ohio for a special tour of the museum a day before the conference begins, on Thursday, April 26, 2007.  There is a separate registration form on the Ohioana Room web page for the museum tour which can also be downloaded (PDF file).

Our research committee has been conducting local research to investigate people who were involved in the anti-slavery movement and to locate UGRR sites.  We are concentrating on the area of the Bull Skin Trace along Caesars Creek (Waynesville, Harveysburg, Warren County and Clinton County area). The dates for the conference are Friday April 27th, Saturday April 28th and Sunday April 29th, 2007.  On Sunday afternoon participants will go on a bus tour of local anti-slavery/UGRR sites.  

The Mary L. Cook Public Library is a member of the Freedom Station Program of the Freedom Center/National Underground Railroad Museum in Cincinnati.
