The Underground Railroad – Great blog Post by Sandra Taliaferro

When I found this wonderful Underground Railroad post from Sandra Taliaferro, we had just had our Sumner County Historical and Genealogical Society meeting, presented by children’s historical fiction author Jim Baumgardner. Baumgardner spoke about his latest book, “Sarah’s Escape” (www.SarahBooks.net) where Baumgardner’s orphan heroine Sarah becomes involved with her mother’s work on the Underground Railroad, and I learned bits and pieces of information that I’d never heard before.

A few days later, I read Sandra Taliaferros’ great post at “I Never Knew My Father” and she shared with us the ‘password’ that opened the Underground Railroad to escaping slaves:

KNOCK, KNOCK!?!
WHO GOES THERE?

“A FRIEND OF FRIENDS

Taliaferro used such thoughtful and inspirational words, based on the people helping people concept of the Underground to encourage all of us, as genealogists and human beings, to help others along the way while we search and research our family trees.

Please, go read her post, you’ll be glad you did!

  • Thanks for a pointer to this great post! I really enjoyed reading it! Timely for me too, as I just discovered some slaves with given names, and I need to figure out how to share that info, hoping that it will help a fellow researcher. Great article Sandra wrote. Great insight!

  • Joan:

    Thanks for highlighting this great post by Sandra.
