Researching your female ancestors

Researching your female ancestors

I have mentioned here before that researching our female ancestors has been a priority my wife and I have each had through the years we have been doing family history and genealogy research. We hope you will too!

Today, I'm doing a double-dip with this post. I wanted to be sure you saw the article: "Three Ideas for Tracing Your Female Ancestors" by Gena Philibert-Ortega, Guest Writer, at 'The In-Depth Genealogist: a digi-mag for every genealogist' because it spells out very nicely the approaches we have used successfully over the years, and I recommend it to you, if you are not already doing so.

Secondly, as noted earlier, I've joined the team at The In-Depth Genealogist team as The Heritage Tourist where I will be contributing a monthly column to the digi-mag and two blog posts each month in the spot where Gena's fine article appears.

It is my pleasure to promote the digi-mag and blog, and urge you to sign up, free, to receive this useful and interesting information on a regular basis (if you have not already). You can sign up on the right sidebar on the page that opens at the link, above.

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. HI Bill,
    I have been following the group and your stories. I just do not post comments daily. Sometimes I have more luck with females other times I am really mired in the muck. One is the MADISON ancestor I recently blogged about. Thanks for all your writing.

  2. Thank you, Susi. I really appreciate your comments. You are a very loyal follower! ;-)

  3. Bill,

    Thanks so much for mentioning my blog post. I really appreciate it.

    I look forward to reading your posts on IDG.


  4. Thank you, Gena. It was a pleasure. I like to recommend articles that are meaningful to me - and have it be in IDG was as nice bonus! ;-)
