Successful research for the ladies on your pedigree requires knowing the sources most likely to document a woman's life, how to find those records, and how to fit the evidence to your pedigree.
This book provides a precise guide to principal indexes available, complete with addresses and how to follow-up information on women. The author draws examples from: * 7,000 women "Friends" petitioners against tithes (England) 1659 * work identification permits (Europe) * bastardy bonds (Georgia) * marriage certificates and census records * city court and police records (St. Paul, MN) * list of nurses (Chicago) * newspaper gossip columns * yellow fever deaths (Philadelphia)
She provides three separate search checklists (determined by time period), and outlines eight strategies for tracing your pedigree ladies complete with examples for each strategy. An extensive annotated bibliography of sources for women, special research collections and periodicals is included.
