Researching female ancestors can be difficult. Women usually lost their birth surnames when they married, and were often only referred as "Mrs. Husband's Name." Women couldn't vote until the 1920s, and usually were not naturalized. But there are many "hidden" sources that can assist you in understanding the laws and situations that affected whether or not she might be named in various documents and other clues that will be shared with you when Melissa Shimkus presents "Discovering Your Female Ancestors" at the Allen County Genealogical Society of Indiana
Meeting on Wednesday, April 9th, at 6:30 pm in Meeting Room A. The Society welcomes guests, so join them and Melissa for this informative and entertaining session!
