The Orphan Train presented by Rochelle Gridley

Tue Jun 20 19:00:00 2017

The McLean County Genealogical Society welcomes Rochelle Gridley, who will present on her research topic, The Orphan Train.

Many young orphaned children were brought west from New York to be adopted by families eager to build their families, to have young helpers in their homes and on the farms. This is a very inspiring topic. Come and hear about what these children went through on their way to a new life. This is a topic that will be of interest to all. The public is invited to attend. Refreshments will be served. For more information about the meeting please contact Eleanor Med at (309) 454-2688.
