Maiden Name Not Known Preview

Nancy Hanks Lincoln depiction-smallEnjoy this preview to Finding Women: Maiden Name Not Known, with Craig Roberts Scott, MA, CG, FUGA

Learning the maiden name of a wife can be one of the more difficult tasks in genealogical research. It is clear that women can be hard to find. At least more difficult than finding the husbands. When a maiden name is hard to find you may have to learn it through the records of the men in her life. The males in a woman’s life may be her father, her grandfather, her husband, her brother, her son, and her son-in-law. They could be her ex-husband, her father-in-law, her brother-in-law, and so many others.

This webinar was presented live on 20 May 2016, and again on 8 July 2016. A free public viewing of the entire webinar was available 5-7 Aug 2016.

The full webinar, along with handout, is available in the Member Webinars section of the website.
Also available in the NCGS online store. Webinar CD includes the PDF handout. Also available in the NCGS online bookstore is North Carolina Research - Genealogy and Local History, the text for the NCGS Webinar Series, and Webinar CDs for all released webinars.
