For most of recorded time, women didn’t leave much of a paper trail, but they have remarkable stories to tell. Deeper research into underutilized records often lead to a better understanding of the women in our family trees. In this talk, we’ll explore a variety of records, and also look at local history, the law, politics, and the cataclysmic events that confronted women to help us bring their hidden stories to light.

Published in top genealogy journals, including the National Genealogical Society Magazine, Pam specializes in Family History Research, and she’s a seasoned speaker at conferences nationwide.
