The Museum and DuPage County Genealogical Society present Liz Ross, speaking on the hidden half

Women make up about 50% of the population but seem to present about 85% of the difficulties for genealogists. They are almost invisible legally, they change their surname at marriage, and in old age disappear into their children’s household. Yet, often, these very things assist the genealogist in tying together the generations and building the family both up and out.
