UGRR Operator Interviews

For anyone interested in the UGRR and the operators in Ohio & other states these interviews found in the Wilbur H. Siebert Collection housed at the Ohio Histroical Society are a must read.
Access to the Collection is FREE during February for Black History Month.

A suggestion for browsing the collection for those not interested in a particular individual or incident. Use the advanced search feature and simply enter the word operator, or the name of an Ohio county and page after page of interviews will appear. The interviews are in a type written and also a transcribed format. They contain a wealth of genealogical information in addition to the "how" of operations for the UGRR.

On a personal note I have African American familial connections in Champaign, Clark, Hancock, Hardin, Logan, Miami, Pickaway, Ross & Shelby counties of Ohio.

Enjoy the interviews,
Art
