maiden name searchIdentities of women prior to the twentieth century can often be very difficult to determine because they were so entangled with those of their husbands. This was a result of both law and custom. Women were often neglected in family histories and genealogical information and listed with only first names and approximate birth and death dates. Women are sometimes considered our invisible ancestors.

Tracing your female ancestors can be frustrating, but it can also be a very rewarding challenge of genealogical research. There are many non traditional avenues to pursue when searching for your elusive female ancestors. Be creative, have patience and don’t give up. They’re counting on you!
