In Response To: OHS Wilbur Siebert UGRR Collection Free During BHM ()
It has been almost 9 years since we corresponded about Siebert's papers being digitized! Come to find out last Feb the digitized collection was available for free!!! What a missed opportunity for me. I need to keep a closer watch of this forum. Anyway, just sent a message to the Ohio Memory folks to see how to get access to the collection. I gather there is some kind of paid subscription. Haven't heard back from them yet so was wondering if you or others have signed up to get access and if so how much does it cost.
Recall my ancestors Solomon Day and John Day were listed as "Negro Operators" in Logan county in Sieberts original 1898 manuscript. I had been to the OHS archives back in 2000-2001 and examined quite a few boxes in the Siebert collection but could find no supporting material for why they were listed. Hearing now that the collection is digitized I can go back and more meticulously examine his source material. Hope a subscription is not too expensive!
