When I began my genealogy research some 30 years ago, I started with researching my maternal grandmother. In those days before online databases, I spent countless hours digging through old documents and corresponding with various archives and repositories to obtain records to verify family stories.
In hindsight, choosing a woman for my first research project may not have been the best strategy since historically women are typically more difficult to track down. Eventually, I learned enough details about my grandmother's life to write my book Three Slovak Women. I overcame many research challenges and I can help you find your elusive female ancestors.
