June 28: Researching your Historical LGBTQ+ Relatives webinar from the Center for Jewish History #events
Family History Today: Researching your Historical LGBTQ+ Relatives
You may have heard family rumors about the “bachelor uncle” or the aunt and her “roommate.” Perhaps, you identify as LGBTQ+ and want to know if there were others like you in your family tree. Professional genealogist Janice Sellers will show you how to pursue this avenue of family history research. In addition, she will discuss ethical concerns you should consider, and why an understanding of gay history is critical to finding and understanding information about your LGBTQ+ forebears.
