Each lecture takes place on the third Thursday of the month and will be accessible here on our website, via Zoom; please check back for the links to each lecture as they become available.
Our first lecture is scheduled for Thursday, April 15 at 6:30 pm with Michael Brophy: Orphan Trains: History, Genealogy, Legacy.
The Orphan Trains operated between 1854 and 1929, transporting 200,000+ children from New York to the Midwest and beyond. Over two million descendants live on to tell the stories of this uniquely American movement through oral history, genealogy research with ongoing, careful care of the unique records.
Michael Brophy is a nationally known professional genealogical researcher, heir search specialist, and lecturer from the Boston area. He has served as Board Member on the Massachusetts Genealogical Council and the New England Association of Professional Genealogists. Mike was featured on Who Do You Think You Are? and conducted research for Ancestry.com, book authors, and hundreds of private clients.
