    “ Her Name was Not Unknown

    Finding Female Ancestors"


    Gena Philibert-Ortega

    Thursday, July 26, 2018 at 7:00 pm

    “What’s her maiden name?” “What happened to her after her husband died?” “How do I start researching my great-grandmother?” 

    We’ve all felt the disappointment of seeing the word “unknown” to describe a female ancestor’s name. How do we go from “unknown” to finding a name? 

    This presentation will demonstrate, using a 5-step
    approach, - techniques, methodology, and resources for
    researching (and finding) your female ancestors.
