Searching for the Edwards Trace. Tracy Garrison, genealogist and surveyor for over 30 years, will discuss the work of amateur archaeologists, local historians and surveyors to document the Edwards Trace in Illinois. First used by animals and then by Native Americans as an alternative to canoeing up the Illinois River from St. Louis to Peoria, it was also used during the War of 1812 and by early settlers moving northward into Illinois from St. Louis.
