How Advertising Brought Our Ancestors to the Midwest
- Presenter: Annette Burke Lyttle
- Date: Tuesday, August 15, 2017
- Time: 7:00 PM CST
- Webinar Description: Motivation is one of the hardest factors to identify when we're trying to reconstruct our ancestors' stories. Business owners, land speculators, and communities wishing to grow all turned to various forms of advertising to entice people to migrate to the Midwestern territories and states. Examining some of the messages aimed at getting people to settle in sparsely-populated places can give us a window into what may have motivated our ancestors to move west.
