Finding Female Ancestors: First Steps

Finding female ancestors can be challenging at best. With name changes and a lack of records, female ancestors seem to all but disappear. However, finding women in your family tree starts with an understanding of the methodology needed to conduct good family history research. In this 4 week course we will explore that methodology by first discussing how researching women is different. We’ll take some cues from historians who research women combined with genealogical sources to better understand where to find the documents that list women. As we close we will explore researching women from different ethnic backgrounds. This 4 week course is for those who need more help in researching and more importantly, finding female ancestors.
