Be it due to the socio-economic situation, immigration or socialism, documents do exist that help put our mothers, grandmothers and other female relatives at a certain place at a certain time. The women in our families were involved in all facets of everyday life; we just need to think beyond the BMD. The aim of the lecture is to explore the type of sources to look for when researching your female ancestors, with examples from the Israel Genealogy Research Association?s [IGRA] All Israel Database (AID) collection http://genealogy.org.il/AID/index.php . Two in a series of articles on the subject has already been published on the IGRA website. The first article is called ?Researching Your Female Ancestors in Eretz Israel: Part One ? The Ottoman Empire Period?. The second article is "Researching Your Female Ancestors in Eretz Israel: Part Two - The British Administration of Eretz Israel - first half" (1917-1948). The series will include one more article dealing with the period of the British Administration, and then an article dealing with the period of the State of Israel.
