Women's History Month 2019 Starts March 1st

It's almost March and that means Women's History Month. Since 2013, March has  meant 30 days of blog posts that focus on finding female ancestors on Gena's Genealogy. So what can you expect this year?

This year the theme is "I'm in the Book!" 30 blog posts will focus on all types of directories that list women. Yes, city directories will be featured but there will be other types of directories as well. I'll focus on a type of directory, provide you some information about why it's important, and where you can find it.

30 days of resources for your research. What could be better?

Can't wait until March? Check out the previous year's posts and resources by following the links on the right side of this blog.

See you on March 1st!
