Yankee Meeting Feminine Mystique: Finding Female Ancestors (YGS quarterly meeting)
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.
