Need Ideas for Researching Female Ancestors?

I'm proud to announce that Tracing Your Female Ancestors, a special issue of Internet Genealogy Magazine  is now available!

I wrote these articles to help researchers explore  new ideas for researching their female ancestors. Researching women is different and these unique sources, including websites and brick and mortar repositories, provide family historians with new ways to approach their research. An added plus is an article by Maureen Taylor on researching women in photographs.

Articles include:
