Barbara’s Beaus and Gesche’s Girls-with Michael John Neill

This webinar on 18 September 2011 (3 PM CST) will look at two 19th century female German immigrants to the Midwest. Along the way we'll see how a variety of records were used to track these two females for whom name variants, name changes, and language challenges worked to make research even more difficult.

Not just about Germans, this lecture also touches on inheritance, female property ownership, and court and probate records.

We'll also track through Barbara's husbands--2, 3, or 4--depending upon how you count.
