Family historians are often accused of interesting themselves only in the male lines of their ancestry, following the history of the surname. Older pedigree compilations often ignore the daughters of a family leaving it difficult to establish the distaff line. Find out about the sources that you can use to throw more light into the lives of your ancestresses and hear their voices.

During this half-day course:

- Else Churchill looks at the sources available to enable you to trace your female ancestors;

- Adele Emm looks at the Suffragists and explains why they were not Suffragettes.
