Most historical records have been created for and about men, which has made it more challenging to research and write about female ancestors. In this talk, Lisa Alzo will share effective ways to discover your female ancestors and document the important roles their lives played in culture and society. She will also discuss various methods for writing about your female ancestors—from short, informative biographical sketches to writing a complete book—along with options for publishing your family history.
Lisa A. Alzo, M.F.A., is a freelance writer, instructor, and internationally recognized lecturer specializing in Slovak and Eastern European genealogical research, writing your family history, and using the Internet to trace female and immigrant ancestors. She is the author of 11 books, including the award-winning Three Slovak Women
