Filling in the Stories of Our Female Ancestors 

Presented by Pam Vestal

60-Minute Bonus Track

For most of recorded time, women didn’t leave much of a paper trail, but they still had remarkable stories to tell. Although it may appear that they haven’t left many documents behind, deeper research into underutilized records will often lead to a better understanding of the women in our family trees.  In this talk, we’ll explore a variety of records, and also look at local history, the law, politics, and the cataclysmic events that confronted them to help us bring their hidden stories to light.
