Finding Female Ancestors"


Gena Philibert-Ortega

“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.
