BOOK - Finding Florence, Maude, Matilda, Rose: Researching and Writing Women into Family History    [Australia perspective]

Softcover...18.50 (C$)

'Finding Florence, Maude, Matilda, Rose' brings to the family hsitorian the plethora of methodology, sources and ideas now useful for researching and writing about women ancestors in the 21st century.

The book sets out in a concise and readable format how you can more easily trace female ancestors in public and private sources; how you can use the internet and new technologies to do the research, and how to access and find new online indexes, special collections and lists of women's research and resources.

'Finding Florence, Maude, Matilda, Rose' is an invaluable guide through the many diverse records available today and also directs researchers to the special areas of research useful for women's lives such as family sources, family stories, letters, photographes, cookbooks, cards, oral history and certificates.

Research women's lives requires the family historian to be resourceful, and to search also in public records relevant for women and children, and the family. This book will guide you through those lists of public records, women's organisations, education records, hospitals, health and nursing records and women's work, and help you marry that research to a writing process aimed squarely at writing more effectively and fully about the women in your past.
