She Did What? Putting Your Ancestor in Historic Context
Saturday, May 11
She Did What? Putting Your Ancestor in Historic Context
10:30 am to 12:00 pm
Middlesex Chapter Meeting
She Did What? Putting Your Ancestor In Historic Context discusses how to research and document your ancestors beyond vital records and relationships. Sara describes how to discover more about your ancestors' lives by weaving broad historic themes and conflicts (e.g., war, disease, etc.) with everyday life. Understanding the historic context in which they lived can help us bridge the gap where no documents exist.
