Today we look at links to collections for the Christian ecumenical group Church Women United. As I have discussed throughout the month, it's important to consider what groups your female ancestor was a member of. While this is a more recent example, it helps to illustrate what types of records exist.

It's wonderful that this is an ecumenical group, so that it includes church women's groups across the board. And if you know your female ancestor's denomination, as many do, that's a way to get even closer.
