About this Event

Although the Representation of the People Act in 1918 gave some women the right to vote it wasn’t until 1928 that they got equal franchise with men over 21. Thereafter Electoral Registers become a vital resource for tracing the female line, bridging the gap between the 1911 census and today. Bring the 1939 Register into play and many sources in this talk are particularly, though not exclusively, relevant to researching women and developing the maternal side of family trees. However, there are some objects traditionally known as “she” which, when researched, may provide a fascinating insight into your ancestor’s life.
