Sunday, March 8th, is International Women's Day and here in the United States the month of March is Women's History Month — a perfect time to celebrate the women in your family tree by learning more about them and telling their stories!
And a great way of learning about the females in your family tree is by focusing on finding documents that can reveal more about them as well as focusing on documents that reveal clues to help you ferret out their story. Sometimes the clue is that the document puts them in a specific time and place and sometimes it can reveal even more like familial relationships. A document is like a box of chocolates. You just never know what you're gonna get.
Every Friday, Findmypast releases new records sets, and to help you find out more about the women in your family tree, according to their press release, they have released "...over 9,500 fascinating UK military records that illustrate the various roles played by woman during the First World War."
