“The Secret Lives of Women:
Researching Female Ancestors Using the Sources They Left Behind”
How do you research the women in your family tree? In some of the same ways you research men but you also have to consider what documents and items were left behind by women. In this lecture we look at the specific trail women left including signature quilts, community cookbooks, journals and diaries.
