    • Webinar via Zoom


     Guest speaker Gena Philibert-Ortega

      Session 1: 25 Tips For Researching Your Female     Ancestors.

      Session 2: The Secret Lives of Women: Research   Female Ancestors Using the Sources They Left Behind.

    Why is finding a female ancestor so difficult? One reason is the way we research their lives. Successful research must combine familiar genealogical sources and the specific sources that women left behind. It is the sources that women authored or participated in that tell us their unique story.  In this lecture we look at the specific trail women left including signature quilts, community cookbooks, journals, and diaries.

    As genealogists we spend most of our time searching for those elusive ancestors and adding their records to our tree. But how do you communicate what you have discovered to your family and others in a manner that will be interesting? This Special Interest Group will discuss techniques for organizing, publishing, and using social media to highlight the story you have to tell.

    The primary focus of this workshop is on Reunion for Mac although other genealogy topics of interest are covered.
