Second Saturday Speaker Series: Female Ancestors
Saturday, March 9, 2019 – 1:00pm to 3:00pm
SGS Library, 6200 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle
Women make up one half of our ancestry and yet discovering their stories can be some of our biggest genealogical challenges. Identifying maiden names is a key objective, but understanding how they lived is equally important. Because they were all too often left out of the history books we have to use other methods to piece together details for our female ancestors. We’ll explore a variety of strategies for bringing our grandmothers out of the shadows.
