- Remember the Ladies: “Unique Sources for Finding Female Ancestors” You are familiar with standard genealogy resources like the US Federal census, vital records, and city directories. But what about those unique sources which include the names of women from a specific location, working outside of the home, or involved in a religious or membership activity? Gena shares eight fantastic sources in this article. By Gena Philibert-Ortega
- Modus Operandi: “Lineage Societies- Recognizing Sons and Daughters” From whom are you descended? Is there a group you can join to honor them? How do you find one and apply? This month we are answering all your questions about Lineage Societies. By Cheri Hudson Passey
- Ladies First: “Votes for Women: the fight for female suffrage” In this article, we look at the fight for the right to vote; an issue in which the ladies of the world have definitely not come first. In the year that marks the centenary of British women being given the vote, we examine the woman’s suffrage movement in many countries of the English-speaking world. By Janet Few
- Genealogy Downunder: “Finding Ancestors in Digitized Publications: Victoria” Family history is closely aligned to local history and my new series of articles looks at online resources that help to place Australian ancestors within their local communities. We will look at specific websites that make freely available books, journals, directories, government gazettes and other similar resources. We continue our journey with Victoria (and remember that some state-based resources may also be applicable to other Australian states and territories). By Shauna Hicks
- Heimatbote: “German Civil Registration Records” Did you know that 1874 was a watershed year in German genealogy? Gain insight on what you need to know to locate and understand civil registration records. By Ute Brandenburg
