Learn how to find clues in genealogical records for ancestors who may have been LGBTQ. Hear stories of LGBTQ history and find out how to discover the stories of LGBTQ family members.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer folk have always been part of history and family stories. The confirmed bachelor or spinster aunt in family trees may not have been single. Perhaps they did have partners but there is no legal documentation or family acknowledgement. This class will explore censuses, newspapers, obituaries, military records, photographs, phone books, and archives for clues on ancestors' sexuality. We will also explore LGBTQ history and the many individual stories giving context to the available records. Discovering LGBTQ ancestors' stories can enrich your entire family history.
