The Evolution of Women’s Legal Rights in America
by Kathleen Bird


Significant clues can be missed in researching our female ancestors if we are not mindful of the legal rights and constraints on women in the times in which they lived. We’ve come a long way, Baby..
Our presenter, Kathleen Bird, a hobby genealogist and lawyer, will discuss the legal rights of women in America from French, British and Spanish colonial times up to the present time.
