I Remember Mama--But Not Her Maiden Name
Sunday, October 14, 2018
Genealogist Mary Kircher Roddy identifies more than twenty wall-breaking strategies for finding the maiden name of "troublesome" women in your family's past.
Roddy became interested in genealogy in 2000 in anticipation of a sabbatical in Ireland where her husband was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Limerick. Trained originally as an accountant, Roddy earned a certificate in Genealogy and Family History at the University of Washington in 2005.
Roddy frequently lectures around the Seattle area, and is an active member of Seattle Genealogical Society. Her husband's most recent sabbatical brought them to Sydney, Australia and while he taught at the University of Western Sydney, Mary spent her time swapping research strategies and methodologies with the genealogists at the Botany Bay Family History Society.
She is a member of the Genealogical Speakers Guild, The Association of Professional Genealogists, and the National Genealogical Society.
