Chasing Women: Finding Your Female Ancestors
Webinar: Presented by Leland K. Meitzler
Locating the names of our female ancestors can be difficult-principally, because their names changed upon marrying. Women historically have not produced as many records as their husbands, since women’s suffrage largely did not exist until the twentieth century. This adds to the difficulty of finding their names, let alone the details of their lives. There are two major search areas that we deal with in locating women’s names, the first being the search for their maiden names, and secondly, the search for their married names. One search can be as hard as the other, and you my find you are doing both types of searches on the same women. Join nationally known, speaker, author, and publisher. Leland K. Meitzler as he gives details on a wide variety of sources, starting with the obvious, and working its way through sources that you may not have thought of using previously.
