A VOYAGE ON THE ERIE CANAL
Olympia Genealogical Society member Joyce Ogden lived in a house in Brockport NY for 20 years where the backyard ended at the Erie Canal, but she had no idea then that there was a personal family connection. As she later discovered, however, she had THREE ancestors who had died in the canal in different years and in different circumstances. This presentation will include color photos, black-and-white photos, genealogy charts, a map or two, and newspaper clippings. It may bore you with some spreadsheets, but it will send you out with historical Erie Canal music.
This virtual presentation via ZOOM will be given at Olympia Genealogical Society’s monthly meeting on Thursday, February 11 at 7 pm. Access our website at https://OlyGenSoc.org and look for directions there.
