Pedigree Ladies

Event Date/Time

January 29, 2016 10:00 AM   -   January 29, 2016 11:30 AM

Description and Highlights

Tracing Pedigree Ladies successfully in the 21st century requires an examination of their every day lives: ladies’ work, ladies’ skills, ladies’ duties, ladies’ contacts, ladies’ responsibilities when they become ancestors. Most historical treatments in the past overlooked or ignored the role women played, except peripherally, developing certain stereotypes about women--especially the idea that they did not work outside the home. Even the census takers messed up--recording almost all ladies as housekeepers, which they were; yet, ignoring what else they did during their lives.

A woman approached me at the conclusion of a recent conference to exclaim, "You are so right! I gave my autobiography to my grandchildren for Christmas-and I never said one word about the jobs I held. The work I did. Or even my special services classification with the U.S. Government."

Since surviving historical sources included the ladies on your pedigree, you can still go back and identify them: in the family, in the workplace, in social reform, and in the military.

Join Holly Hansen and Arlene H. Eakle for this lively discussion on Pedigree Ladies.
