Genealogy group to learn about finding female ancestors on May 6

WOLFEBORO — The Wolfeboro Public Library, in conjunction with The Lakes Region Genealogical Interest Group, is continuing its series of genealogical workshops on Tuesday, May 6, at 10 a.m. This month's workshop features a webinar presentation by Leland K Meitzler entitled Finding Your Female Ancestors and will outline twenty-eight often overlooked sources for finding elusive maiden names both in the United States and foreign counties. The workshop is free and open to all.
Besides invaluable information about finding maiden names, Meitzler sheds light on other sometimes hidden pieces of genealogical information which are woven into the same documents. This presentation is a must for any avid or beginning genealogist who finds names and places eluding them or who wishes to document presently held information on their ancestors.
In addition to leading the researcher to microfilmed genealogical data, Meitzler's presentation also addresses the possible physical locations of essential information still not available on the Internet. As any seasoned genealogist knows, planning trips to historical societies, local libraries, physical locations of family settlements and graveyards constitutes some of the most exhilarating of genealogical experiences. As we enter into the summer and fall seasons, Meitzler gives to us a variety of ideas for family excursions and trips to those places of ancestral genealogical interest.
Meitzler has over fifty years of experience as an avid genealogist. In 1985 he founded Heritage Quest, one of the premier research sites for free access to U.S. census records, books, periodicals, Revolutionary War service records, and Freedman's Bank deposit records. Meitzler has also worked as the managing editor of both Heritage Quest Magazine and The Genealogical Helper and speaks nationally, having given over 2,000 lectures since 1983.
