"Orphan Trains and the Children Who Rode Them" By Karen A. Fortin
The story of the Orphan Trains, which relocated children from the eastern cities
to rural farmlands, has become a part of American popular culture. This presentation
explores the facts behind the legends, follows a group of children "placed-out"
in 1880, and provides information on resources available to learn more about the
orphan trains and their riders.
Karen A. Fortin has degrees in History and Library Science and a passion
for research. She is a member of various genealogical societies and loves to help
people explore their family's history and the world in which they lived.

America and kept excellent records. Learn key profiling techniques so you can
spot the Quaker in your family tree.
