Janet's topic: Difficult Women: The Ways Our Female Ancestors Confound Our Research

The names of our female ancestor’s changed in expected and in some cases, unexpected ways. Onomatology is the study of names. Of all the problems encountered in genealogical research, names are some of the toughest.
