March 20 - search for female ancestors.

March 20 - Home sources can be a gold mine for female ancestor information. Look in your own attic and offer to help relatives search theirs for dairies, wedding-guest registers, baby books, family bibles, insurance papers, letters and the like.

What a great way to get to know your relatives a little more. If you volunteer to search relative homes, keep the visit short and sweet. Bring your camera or hand held scanner and photograph or scan documents and pictures that are found. Remember relatives might not want to give you their things and by scanning them on site, you won’t have to remove anything from their home. Oh knows, they may just give you the items.
