In 1793, the Government of Upper Canada approved a law that ensure that any slave coming into its territory was automatically freed. Upper Canada became a haven for African Americans seeking freedom and political rights. This correspond to a difficult period researching genealogy. While this webinar will use examples from Black genealogy, many of the sources used are useful for anyone who has ancestors who lived in Upper Canada during the same time period.
