Grandmothers, Mothers & Daughters: Researching Your Female Lines

In honor of Mother's Day this past weekend, Family Tree DNA is hosting a free webinar about researching the women in our family trees. 

Making genealogical connections with your mtDNA matches has unique challenges since females are often more difficult to research, so we're offering this webinar to help you learn more about researching your female relatives. 

Of course, this topic should be of interest to everyone, not just those who have done DNA testing, so we invite anyone interested in this topic to attend!

Grandmothers, Mothers & Daughters: Researching Your Female Lines 

Thursday, May 15, 2014 @ 12pm Central (5pm UTC)

Free Registration:

Webinar Description:
Most historical records have been created for and are about men, making it more challenging to research the women in your family tree. This webinar will discuss the importance of documenting your female ancestors' lives, provide tips for tracking down those elusive maiden names, and offer a list of key resources you'll need to get started.

About our guest speaker:

Lisa A. Alzo, M.F.A., is a freelance writer, instructor, and internationally recognized lecturer, specializing in Slovak/Eastern European genealogical research, writing your family history, and using the Internet to trace female and immigrant ancestors. She is the author of nine books and hundreds of magazine articles.

An archived recording of this webinar will be available on the Webinars page of the Family Tree DNA Learning Center through June 15, 2014.
