Widows, spinsters, and bachelors are a part of everyone's ancestral tree. Widows create tax records and appear in city directories, land records, and estate records. They may be identified with their married name or maiden name. They may or may not have been living with their adult children or buried with their husband. Adults may never have been married or may be difficult to identify because they were the last of their branch of the family. They didn't discuss their life, ceased communication with their family, and didn't leave a written record. Come and join us to learn how to conquer these impregnable genealogical forests.
