Learn About the Freedom on the Move Project

February 25, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


The Mercer County Library, Ewing Branch
61 Scotch Road, Ewing
(609) 882-3148| mcl.org

Citizen-historians, family researchers, and others are invited to join a librarian at the Ewing Branch library to learn about the Freedom on the Move crowd-sourced database. A project of Cornell University and others, it digitizes newspaper ads about runaway slaves to provide access to the stories of self-liberating people, and may also lead to discoveries for those seeking hard-to find information about their enslaved ancestors. You may bring your own laptop to contribute to the database, or just come to learn about this unique resource. Registration required. Call 609-882-3148 or e-mail ewprogs@mcl.org with questions.
