Wow you really have a lot of information about your ancestors. So impressed I am that I am even more motivated to find mine!
In my research of fugitive slaves to the Kent County area I am constantly amazed at how many members of my family stayed in the area and how many left when the fugitive slave act was repealled. What surprises me more is the lack of connections people researching Lucas's for example are making to Canada (many believe thier ancestors went as far as Michigan but no further).
If you could send me some info regarding the presentation you are doing in Toronto I would be very interested in attending.
