Fearless Females Blog Post: March 20: Elusive or Brick Wall Ancestor

March 20 — Is there a female ancestor who is your brick wall? Why? List possible sources for finding more information.

I’ve actually been pretty fortunate that my female ancestors have been fairly easy to trace. This is in part due to the excellent collection of microfilmed records available from the Family History Library –church and census records from my ancestral villages in Slovakia. I would like to learn a bit more about my great-grandmothers if possible. In particular, I’m hoping to learn more about my maternal grandfather’s mother. Trying to locate information about her death and also her second marriage. I plan to do research in the one of the Slovak archives during a forthcoming trip and am hoping to locate the necessary documents there. I also hope to make it to the ancestral village while there (I have four of them to visit so don’t know if getting to my grandfather’s village will happen…but I’m going to try).
