Female relatives can be difficult to trace, but they can be found. This class introduces resources for tracing the women in your family, including family items, oral histories, federal and state census records, immigration records, vital records, religious records, journals, newspapers, legal and court records, library archives, and manuscript collections.
Speaker Janice M. Sellers is related to actor Peter Sellers and to John of Gaunt, son of a king and father of a king. At least that’s what her grandparents told her. Unfortunately, they were both wrong, but that’s why she has researched her family for 46 years and now helps others find the right pieces to fit their genealogy puzzles. She specializes in Jewish, Black and forensic research. She is responsible for publicity and programs for the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society and is the editor of ZichronNote. Her site is ancestraldiscoveries.com.
