You are invited to attend our FREE online UGA Virtual Chapter Meeting
Speaker – Gena Philibert-Ortega
Topic – The Secret Lives of Women: Research Female Ancestors Using the Sources They Left Behind
Thursday, October 18, 2012, 7:00 pm MDT @ virtual.ugagenealogy.org
Women ancestors can be difficult to trace--but not impossible. How do you research female ancestors and how is that research different than searching for male ancestors? Sources discussed go beyond sparse government papers, and into libraries, archives, manuscript collections, and female specific resources.
