If you have female ancestors you need to watch Leland Meitler's presentation Chasing Women: Finding Your Female Ancestors, now available in our webinar-on-CD library. Attendees commented "Great ideas, I think I can now break a brickwall that is twenty years old!" and "this webinar certainly opened my eyes to the importance of using records that I had not tried before."
Viewing a webinar-on-CD is like having your own private genealogy instructor in your home - anytime! Just insert the CD into your computer's CD or DVD drive and enjoy personal training from the industry's finest teachers. The video topics are bookmarked so you can quickly jump from topic to topic or just watch it straight through. You can pause, rewind, or fast-forward at your leisure.
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.
