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.
