The DGS Fall Lecture on September 27 features Judy G. Russell, The Legal Genealogist. Her day-long program is titled Genealogy and the Law-From the Past to the Future.
The second of her four presentations that day is “Don’t Forget the Ladies – A Genealogist’s Guide to Women and the Law”. In early America, women were all too often the people who just weren’t there: not in the records, not in the censuses, not on juries, not in the voting booth. The common law relegated women to “protected” – second-class –status and understanding how they were treated under the law provides clues to finding their identities today.
Judy is a Certified Genealogist and Certified Genealogical Lecturer with a law degree. She is a lecturer, educator and writer who enjoys helping others understand a wide variety of genealogical issues, including the interplay between genealogy and the law.
