Throughout 2020, the Seattle Genealogical Society will commemorate the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage with educational events including lectures, workshops, articles, a resource guide and an exhibit in our library. What were your grandmothers' or great-grandmothers' lives like a century ago? Join us on a path of exploration. Learn to access and use genealogical tools and techniques to successfully discover your female ancestors and write their storiesThrough genealogy and family history, learn about the expanding civic role of women, explore the changes in women’s lives and that of their families and communities culminating in the passage of the 19th Amendment. In the Fall of 2020, SGS plans to publish a special edition of our Journal of the Seattle Genealogical Society with articles describing the changing roles of women’s lives from 1880 – 1920, especially in Washington state.  
 
We hope to hear the stories of your female ancestors - whether they resided in Washington state or elsewhere. If your are interested in sharing a story, photo or a genealogical gem, or wish to volunteer,  please contact Heidi Mair, Director of Volunteers (volunteers@seattlegenealogicalsociety.org).
