Mary Kircher Roddy - webinar

“Trails West: Crossing the Continent 1840-1869"

Before the transcontinental railroad was completed Easterners and Mid‐Westerners began to settle the West. How did they get there and what was the journey like?  Ms. Roddy’s presentation will cover overland and water migration routes along with descriptions of the journey, and tips on using clues to discover how and when your ancestor traveled.
