Women's History Month 2015 : International Women's Day

Today is International Women's Day. It's hard to come up with something that encompasses researching female ancestors from all over the world. Obviously, it's hard for one source to do all of that. So it seemed like a good idea to remember to always start your research with the FamilySearch Catalog.

To find the catalog go to FamilySearch then select  Search>Catalog. Then conduct multiple searches including a keyword search. In this search on the keyword "women" I found over 4,000 resources.

There are some great resources here including:

  • Women distinguished in the work of social reform = A companion for Japanese women
  • Register of married women's separate property, 1859-1903
  • Brave days : pioneer women of New Zealand
  • We, the undersigned : a historical overview of New Brunswick women's political and legal status, 1784-1984
  • Irish women in colonial Australia
  • Native American women : a biographical dictionary
Take some time to peruse the FamilySearch Catalog and the great resources within.
