Grandmothers, Mothers & Daughters: Researching Your Female Lines
Lisa A. Alzo
  • Presenter: Lisa Alzo
  • Date:  Tuesday, February 17, 2015
  • Time:  7:00 PM CST
  • Webinar Description:  Most historical records have been created for and/or about men, making it more challenging to research and write about female ancestors.  This session will demonstrate effective ways to discover the females in your family tree.  Learn about the key sources for determining maiden names, how to overcome the most common obstacles for researching female lines, and the best methods for documenting and sharing “her” story. A sample case study will be provided.
