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.

Using and Evaluating Published Genealogies

Thursday, March 21, 3:00–4:00 PM EDT
Presented by Alicia Crane Williams, FASG
FREE and open to the public

 

Following the advent of American genealogy in the early to mid-19th century, thousands of genealogies were published featuring families across the country. While largely uncited—and arguably biased—these early works continue to be an important resource for modern day family historians. Join Lead Genealogist of the Early New England Families Study Project and frequent contributor to the Vita Brevis blog, Alicia Crane Williams, to learn how you can access, evaluate, and utilize early published family histories in your research.
