Pistol-packing, land-owning, rabble-rousing women aren’t hard to find in my family tree, but most of my ancestral females weren’t raising the roof as champions of public service. They were too busy trying to pay the bills and hold families together to do much in the way of community activism. Which is why I appreciate the Fearless Females’ notion of honoring those women during National National Women’s History Month 2016 who have informed, influenced and inspired us in so many variedways.
The Accidental Genealogist, Lisa Alzo, returns once again with Fearless Females, thirty-one blogging prompts celebrating our female ancestors throughout the month of March, National Women’s History Month. No pressure, no deadlines, no rules — just celebrate and enjoy the stories of your female ancestors.
I haven’t yet decided which lucky lady will lead my posts next month, but I’m having fun looking at old photos and recalling some great stories. What fearless females are waiting in your family tree?
