“Finding the Girls” genealogy program
August 3, 2019, 10:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
The Oklahoma Historical Society will present “Finding the Girls” on Saturday, August 3, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Persons researching their families for any length of time have encountered the problems with researching females. In our society, their names change with marriage, and in the past, females could not own property or enter into contracts, which makes locating them in legal records even more difficult. So, what’s a researcher to do? Learn how to consider the times and some of the techniques for researching the females in your family with Oklahoma Historical Society Librarian Debra Spindle, PhD.
This program is $5 for Oklahoma Historical Society members and $10 for nonmembers. We ask that you register in advance. Please call the Research Center at 405-522-5225 to register. This program will be held in the Clark and Kay Musser Learning Lab, which is located inside the Research Center on the first floor of the Oklahoma History Center.
