Female ancestors are often the keepers of family traditions, heirlooms, photographs, memories, and records. Finding and identifying them, however, can be difficult since women lose their surname and property through marriage. Nancy C. Nelson and Carol M. Sheaffer, who have a combined 50 years experience in genealogical research, will share tips and advice for helping you identify your female ancestors and their family of origin.
