Finding Women in the Archives
Women make up 50% of your ancestry, yet their lives, experiences, and even complete names are all too often forgotten by written history. Although often overlooked in official records, throughout time women have been the keepers of family and personal history.
When they survive, diaries, letters, account books, family bibles, samplers, organization records, and more can reveal more about a woman’s daily life than any government document.
New England Historical Genealogical Society's Ann Lawthers will discuss how these unique records and manuscripts can be used to piece together a family story and how digging in the archives can hit genealogical gold.
Registration is required. A Zoom link will be sent to registrants 1 hour before the program starts.
