Saturday October 18 at 10:30am. Meeting at Lynnfield Family History Center, 400 Essex Street, Lynnfield, MA.
TIARA members Susan Steele and Virginia Wright will present "Wives, Daughters, Mothers, Sisters: Weavers, Domestics, Machine Operators, Seamstresses". Susan and Virginia will examine the lives of women in the workplace - from domestic service to military service, from mills to medical practices. Fraternal insurance records, local history files and other industry specific sources will be examined as sources of information about wages, working conditions, barriers and opportunities for our female ancestors.
Please note: This meeting will include a tour of the Lynnfield Family History Center!
Except July and August, TIARA usually meets either the second Friday evening of every month,
or on the following Saturday morning at various locations.
On Friday nights, the meetings will be held at a new location - Room G3 in the Mandel Center for Humanities, on the campus of Brandeis University, 415 South St., Waltham, Massachusetts. ( See the Brandeis University campus map
The programs presented at the meetings vary, but may include general topics such as:
how to do genealogical research; Irish history; resources for Irish
research in the New England, Dublin, and Belfast area; and how to locate
ancestors in Maritime Canada, Northern Ireland, or the Republic of Ireland.
