November 27:
Craig Rich Almost Home: The Phoenix Disaster of 1847 It’s a tale of immigrants to America who had endured a month-long crossing of the Atlantic, then an arduous trek across New York State, then the Erie Canal, boarding a steamship at Buffalo and rounding three Great Lakes only to have their steamship catch fire within five miles off their destination in Lake Michigan. There’s even a surprise ending that genealogists and family historians will love!
