Women’s History Month 2013: 31 Sources for Researching Female Ancestors


From the collection of Gena Philibert-Ortega




Women’s History Month is a great time to start thinking about researching female ancestors. While the “old reliable” genealogy websites we use for research should be used, you might also want to consider other types of websites that can assist you in finding information on your ancestor’s life, her community, and even social history.

For March, I will feature a different source for researching your female ancestors each day. Please take some time to check out these websites, and explore how they can help you with your genealogical/historical research.

Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you found helpful.

A great idea...especially because it can be so challenging at times to locate our female ancestors. I look forward to seeing your resources.
