The speaker for our January 14th General Membership Meeting was Amy Raley Beach. She is the Historian for the Local History and Genealogy Department of the Mobile Public Library. Amy, who is from a Bayou la Batre family, spoke to us on “The Old Federal Roads” and the branches that run throughout Alabama.

As part of Understanding Migration Patterns, she covered the major ports of entry into the United States and the overland migration routes. In addition, the presentation included the development of the southeastern lands under the control of various countries.

Amy used PowerPoint slides to enhance the program and offered to email copies of the slides to anyone who is interested. To receive the slides, send an email to Amy at: abeach@mplonline.org and put MGS in the subject line.
