New "Member Friday" Webinars - Underground Railroad and Black Loyalists by Janice Lovelace

Every Friday we're pleased to offer Legacy Family Tree Webinar subscribers a new bonus webinar just for them! This Friday enjoy two webinars "The (Underground) Railroad Runs Through Here" and "Researching Black Loyalist Communities in Canada" by Janice Lovelace, PhD. 

The (Underground) Railroad Runs Through Here

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. Do you have ancestors that might have been involved in the Underground Railroad? How do you find records of those who were involved?

The (Underground) Railroad Runs Through Here


Researching Black Loyalist Communities in Canada

Thousands of Black people (primarily men) fought on both sides of the Revolutionary War – as Patriots and Loyalists – hoping that freedom from slavery would come with the end of the war. This session looks at those who fought with the British - Black Loyalists. Who were they and what happened to them after the war when they fled to Canada? Learn where to locate records to find out more about the people and their communities.
