Are you researching a female ancestor or historical figure?
Are you gathering facts or is there more to the story?

In this webinar, recorded April 23, 2020, author and Virginia Humanities Fellow Karen Chase shows how to go beyond the standard genealogical records and archives and use the same methods she uses as a historical novelist to recreate the lives of the women she writes about.

In this webinar she shares:

  • A breakdown of research categories for your subject.
  • How that data helps expand your own research network.
  • Underutilized educational and time period resources.
  • Why redefining our roles beyond researchers and genealogists matters.

Our work brings people together and honors our shared humanity.
