In light of the current COVID-19 outbreak, the Cedar Hill Genealogical Society will not be meeting in person until restrictions, placed by Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins and Governor Abbott are lifted.
Monthly VIRTUAL meetings are now being held on Zoom. Info for April 2021 Meeting:
One of the biggest challenges in genealogy is the pursuit of female ancestors. This is because the females were so often absorbed into their husband’s families (assuming they got married), taking on their husband’s surnames, and losing their original identities in historical documents.
In Thursday’s program Pat will show us how to overcome these challenges.
