Description: Female relatives can be difficult to trace, but they can be found. This presentation will familiarize you with the strategies of learning what documents contain a maiden name as you immerse yourself in the history and record-keeping of an area. Janice introduces resources and clues, many of which are available online, for tracing the women in your family, including family items, oral histories, federal and state census records, immigration records, vital records, religious records, journals, newspapers, legal and court records, library archives, and manuscript collections. When you dig deeper you will be pleasantly surprised with an answer that will take you back more than one generation.
