Featured Speaker:  Hal Horrocks
Early Migration, On to Kentucky, and Beyond *
Sorenson Library Meeting Room
6934 Broadway Ave, Whittier CA 90606
+ Zoom
You have traced your ancestors back to Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s. Then you find them in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York or Virginia before that. Have you ever asked yourself how they got to Kentucky? We will explore some of the routes they might have taken to give you a better understanding what your ancestors went through to get a better life and the trials they went through.

The virtual doors will open between noon and 12:30 p.m. and those of you who join online can chat with one another on Zoom before the meeting begins at 1:00 p.m.
