Yankee Meeting Feminine Mystique: Finding Female Ancestors
Saturday, November 12
Yankee Meeting Feminine Mystique: Finding Female Ancestors  (YGS quarterly meeting)
1:00 pm
Location: Online GoToMeeting
Speaker: Alice Hoyt Veen, CG®
 
Who was she? Identifying female ancestors is often a challenge. Legal, historical, and cultural factors shaped women's lives, influencing the records created by and about them. Identify and access sources which can verify your female ancestor's identity and add depth to her story. Learn techniques for revealing a hidden past through case-study examples.
 
Alice Hoyt Veen is a Board-certified genealogist, professional researcher, and genealogical educator. She believes family history success lies in truly understanding the records our ancestors created. Alice has spoken at national, regional, and state conferences, and for numerous local organizations. She is a past trustee for the BCG Education Fund, a charitable trust advancing the educational aims of the Board for Certification of Genealogists.
