"The Underground Railroad was a system developed before the Civil War to guide slaves to freedom. ... This book is devoted to examining the operation of the Underground Railroad in Pennsylvania. The state had three major escape routes, roughly divided into geographic regions: the Western, Central, and Eastern Routes." -- Pref.

"The purpose of this book is to fill in the gaps found in the other studies and to expand on and provide visual representation for the escape routes. The special features of this work include the organization of the many escape paths into specific routes, a set of detailed maps tracing the major routes as the traversed the state ... . The study also lists the names of those individuals who were recorded as having helped in the operation of the railroad." -- Pref.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

We will use this information to improve our records.
