Second Saturday: Giving Our Female Ancestors a Voice
Saturday, May 14
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm
 
The absence of women in historical records often makes our research challenging. Using social history to create rich biographical sketches allows us to bring our female ancestors out of the shadows of the law or their husbands. This presentation offers a narrative lineage set in 19th century Ireland, England, and the U.S., which uses historical context to bring the unique stories of women to life.
