TEASING THE SILENT WOMAN FROM THE SHADOWS OF HISTORY Presented by
Barbara Vines Little, CG

	In historical and genealogical research the silent woman is
often a truism; identifying her is usually difficult; discovering who
she was is frequently considered impossible.  Women rarely functioned in
society in ways which generated records. 

      Barbara Vines Little, CG, will present a talk "Teasing the Silent
Woman from the Shadows of History," on Sunday, November 1, 2009,
beginning at 2:00 p.m. at Bull Run Regional Library.  This lecture which
is based upon an article published in the September 2000 National
Genealogical Society Quarterly explores ways in which records generated
by others can be used to provide windows into women's lives and help us
discover what they and their lives were really like.

       Ms. Little is immediate past president of the National
Genealogical Society, a former president and board member of the
Virginia Genealogical Society, and is editor of the quarterly Magazine
of Virginia Genealogy.  She has lectured for the past twenty-five years
at local, regional, state and national conferences on research
methodology, Virginia and West Virginia resources and writing and
publishing.
