The Firelands, The Connecticut Western Reserve, and the Ohio Territory - free webinar by Peggy Lauritzen, AG now available for limited time
The recording of today's webinar, "The Firelands, The Connecticut Western Reserve, and the Ohio Territory" by Peggy Clemens Lauritzen, AG is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.
The northeastern lands of Ohio are aptly named “The Firelands”, and “The Western Reserve”. How did they come to be called that? And, what connection do they have to the northeastern states? “Ohio fever” brought a lot of settlers to the state following the Northwest Ordinance of 1787. A section of Ohio named “The Western Reserve” will be of particular interest to those having ties to Connecticut.
