Hunting for Hidden History - How Slavery Came to the Town of York - presented by Hilary J. Dawson at the virtual meeting of Oxford Branch of Ontario Ancestors

More Information (104.7 Heart FM is not responsible for external websites)

How do you find out about people who had no rights, rarely appear in the public record and for the most part were illiterate? Where do you look for information about the disadvantaged who did not receive direct payment for their work, and who had little control over their own lives? How can we uncover the stories of indentured servants and enslaved Africans?
Hilary Dawson will explain where she found personal papers and other manuscripts, and show how she used them to piece together the stories of the Pompadour family, Henry Prince and others who were regarded as “property” by York slaveholders like Peter Russell and William Jarvis.
