"Orphan Train Rider"
      What should a city do with thousands of abandoned and orphaned children running the streets of New York?  For 19th-century New Yorkers, the answer was orphan trains. 

The Christian County Genealogical Society will present the program by Tammy Wilson about Orphan Trains and her research to connect her family at 3:00 p.m. Sunday May 31 at the Taylorville Fire Department at 115 E. Vine in Taylorville.   The program is free and open to the public.
