March 1 — Do you have a favorite female ancestor? One you are drawn to or want to learn more about? Write down some key facts you have already learned or what you would like to learn and outline your goals and potential sources you plan to check.
This year I’m still trying to learn more about my great-grandmother, Borbala Manovsky Alzo. I listed her as one of my “Family History Three” in a post back in January 2011.
I know very little about her so hope to find out whatever I can. She died in 1961–the same year (just a few months apart) as her son (my grandfather), and I thought this was an interesting coincidence. I have her marriage record thanks to my cousin. I also have some pictures from her funeral. From family I learned that she had several sisters so I’d like to learn more about them too. I am in the processing of doing more research and am hoping to obtain a copy of her death record from Slovakia, and hopefully will be able to find some other documents, as well.

Is there a twitter #?
I hope that you're able to get more information about her. These brick walls can be both frustrating and exciting, can't they?
I have posted about my husband's great-grandmother at my blog,
Thank you for helping me to figure out what to write about in March!
