​​April 13, 2019 : "Migration Westward in the USA  1840-1900" by Ann Lawthers from NEHGS

  • "Migration Westward in the USA 1840-1900" covers a period of vast and profound changes in America as the Industrial Revolution took hold. Learn how urbanization, overpopulation​, crop failures, and financial disasters pushed your ancestors westward. Discover how the promise of new land, gold, employment, and opportunity pulled your ancestors away from their birthplaces, fueled by sensational newspaper accounts of new places. And with the coming of the railroads, getting there had never been easier.​
