‘Don’t Forget the Ladies’: A Genealogist’s Guide to Women and the Law

March 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

In early America, women were all too often the people who just weren’t there: not in the records, not in the censuses, not on juries, not in the voting booth. The common law relegated women to “protected” – second-class – status, and understanding how they were treated under the law provides clues to finding their identities today.
