Community Reunions

As researchers we need to be on the lookout for community traditions such as annual picnics or homecomings where folks that moved away, travel back for a weekend. The mention of such an event in the Illinois town of Taylorville could be instrumental in uncovering ancestor migrations, and just as important, who their friends and neighbors were.

This is from the online Chicago Defender historical newspaper of June, 26, 1926, reproduced by Proquest.
