Three Ideas for Tracing Your Female Ancestors
My interest in researching female ancestors began over 20 years ago. The more I thought about the challenges facing genealogists researching the women in their families the more I started to wonder why we were trying to research women in the same way that we were researching male ancestors.

"At all times, day by day, we have to continue fighting for freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and freedom from want… from these are things that must gained in peace as well as in war." Eleanor Roosevelt America's great reforming leader and First Lady
This is a brief history about how Women's Equality Day came about. It explains the fight for women to get the right to vote and how they had to do things like picket the White House in order for their voices to be heard. The battle is continuing today and Women's Equality Day celebrates the past achievements but also is a reminder that there is still work to be done. #Womensequalityday

I was doing some research on Martha Jefferson Randolph, the older of President Jefferson’s two daughters, and I stumbled a short little book published by the United States Bureau of National Literature and Art in 1903. The book provides portraits of each of the women who presided over the White House household staff from the time of Martha Washington through Edith Kermit Carow Roosevelt as well as short one or two paragraph biographies.

Internet Site, Website, Web Site
Resources for Researching Your Female Ancestor, Day # 2 Genwriters One of my favorite websites is Genwriters. It combines what I think is important about genealogy, social history and documenting the stories of our ancestor's lives. Genwriters provides resources for various aspects of social history. Those resources can help you in turn learn more about the life of your female ancestor. Topics such as Childbirth in early America, Weddings in 19th Century America, Housework in the late 19th Century and Women’s 19th Century Fashions, can all bring interest to your family history narrative. Use Genwriters as a jumping off place to finding out more information about the lives your ancestor lived. Then use that social history information to enrich your family history narrative.

Resources for Researching Your Female Ancestor, Day # 3 **Note from Gena: The following Church Record Sunday is from October 2011. It seemed appropriate to run it again for Women's History Month. Information in the post has been updated. Churches publish many different kinds of periodicals, brochures, leaflets, books and tracts. In some cases, the publications were meant to spread the gospel to non-members and others were/are publications meant for members that may include the names of everyday individuals. These publications, rarely indexed, provide a place for descendants to look for information about their ancestor. One ancestor of mine was a member of the Salvation Army in the late 1800s. It was through searching microfilmed copies of the Salvation Army newspaper, The War Cry, that I was able to find a mention of him. One example of a church periodical is The Relief Society Magazine printed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1915-1970. The magazine was later replaced by the Ensign which is read by adult members of the Church, both female and male. The Relief Society Magazine provided gospel doctrine information but also celebrated the accomplishments of the Relief Society and it's members. To read more about The Relief Society Magazine see the wiki article found here. The great thing about this magazine is that it included pictures of individual members as well as their names. These names could be found throughout the magazine, in birthday congratulations, letters to the editor, a section entitled Notes from the Field and in small paragraphs about individual achievements. An index to The Relief Society Magazine does exist. You can read more about the Index here. The Relief Society Magazine Index was created by students at BYU. Internet Archive and Google Books both have some digitized copies of The Relief Society Magazine. Several university libraries including BYU have copies of the magazine. You can search on WorldCat to find libraries with copies. You can also find issues for sale on eBay. I was able to purchase some from a Deseret Thrift Store in Southern California. A book about the history of The Relief Society Magazine is entitled, A Legacy Remembered, 1914-1970. Salt Lake City, Utah: Deseret Book, 1982.
