Program Description

Event Details

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and Queer folk have always been a part of our history and family stories. Our trees' confirmed bachelor or spinster aunt may not have been single. Perhaps they did have partners but there is no legal documentation or family acknowledgment. This class will explore census, newspapers, obituaries, military records, photographs, phone books, and archives for clues on our ancestor’s sexuality. We will also explore LGBTQ History and many individual stories giving context to the available records. Discovering our LGBTQ ancestors' stories and inviting them back into our trees will enrich our entire family history.
