“American Women in the 19th Century” by Sylvia Tracy-Doolos @ Frasier Meadows Retirement Community - 4th Floor Assembly Room
Jun 4 @ 7:00 pm

Presentation:

America in the 19th century saw geographic, cultural, and historic changes that affected the records that were created. While this was true for all Americans, it was especially true for women. We’ll look broadly at the 19th century to understand the changes in women’s lives and the new records that were created.
