Free NEHGS Webinar – 18 April 19

Researching Women in Archives

Live Broadcast: Thursday, 4/18, 3:00–4:00 PM EDT
Presented by NEHGS Archivist Judy Lucey
Cost: FREE
Women make up 50% of your ancestry, yet their lives, experiences, and even complete names are all too often forgotten by written history. Although often overlooked in official records, throughout time women have been the keepers of family and personal history. When items such as diaries, letters, account books, family Bibles, samplers, and organization records survive, they can reveal more about a woman’s daily life than any government record. Archivist Judy Lucey will discuss how these unique records and manuscripts can be used to piece together a family story and how digging in the archives can lead to hitting genealogical gold.
