Recording this Webinar was fun, a bit frustrating because of technology challenges, and very worthwhile! I was able to cover numerous resources, with a wonderful response from a worldwide audience.
Locating the names of our female ancestors can be difficult - principally because their names changed upon marrying. Women historically have not produced as many records as their husbands, since women's suffrage largely did not exist until the twentieth century. This adds to the difficulty of finding their names, let alone the details of their lives. There are two major search areas that we deal with in locating women's names, the first being the search for their maiden names, and secondly, the search for their married names. One search can be as hard as the other, and you may find you are doing both types of searches on the same women. Join nationally-known speaker, author, and publisher, Leland K. Meitzler as he gives details on a wide variety of sources, starting with the obvious, and working its way through sources that you may not have thought of using previously.
This class was presented to a live webinar (online seminar) audience on February 16, 2011. 1 hour 21 minutes. Plus a link to download the 4 pages of printable and clickable links in the handouts.
