Researching the women in your family tree often presents significant challenges. Lisa Lisson explains how social history records can help.

Female ancestors frequently did not create many formal records for us – their descendants – to find. Add to that a name change occurring at marriage. And in the case of multiple marriages, that female ancestor may have more than one name change.

No wonder we struggle to identify or keep track of that great-great-grandmother. When searching for our female ancestors, sometimes it’s less about finding that one record naming her husband or parents and more about learning how to find and put clues about her life together to draw the correct conclusion.
