Craig R. Scott - Finding Women: Maiden Name Not Known
The North Carolina Genealogical Society is delighted to present:
Craig Roberts Scott, MA, CG, FUGA
“Finding Women: Maiden Name Not Known” - A LIVE Webinar 8 July 2016, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
(An encore recording will be presented during a Free Viewing Period: 5-7 August 2016.)
Learning the maiden name of a wife can be one of the more difficult tasks in genealogical research. It is clear that women can be hard to find. At least more difficult than finding the husbands. When a maiden name is hard to find you may have to learn it through the records of the men in her life. The males in a woman’s life may be her father, her grandfather, her husband, her brother, her son, and her son-in-law. They could be her ex-husband, her father-in-law, her brother-in-law, and so many others.
Craig Roberts Scott, MA, CG, FUGA, is the author of The ‘Lost Pensions’: Settled Accounts of the Act of 6 April 1838 (Revised) and Records of the Accounting Officers of the Department of the Treasury, Inventory 14 (Revised).

He is the President and CEO of Heritage Books, Inc., a genealogical publishing firm with over 5,100 titles in print.
