Video:  Mothers, Daughters, Wives; Tracing Female Lines:  - Presenter:  Judy G. Russell.  This is a video that was recorded at the 2017 RootsTech Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. Our family history isn't complete without the stories of the women of our families. But all too often they're the ones who just aren't there:  not in the records, not in the censuses, not on juries, not in the voting booth.  Yet despite the limited public existence of women under the law, there are many records left by, about or relevant to our female ancestors.  Learn how to find the mothers, daughters, and wives in your lines through their own records and the records of their men-folk.  Judy G. Russell is a Genealogists with a Law Degree and writes for "The Legal Genealogist".
