Women’s Legacy Project milestone!

Women's Legacy Project

Thanks to Margaret Riddle, Betty Lou Gaeng of the Sno-Isle Genealogical Society and Louise Lindgren of Index for their new additions to the Women’s Legacy Project biographical histories.  We now have 60 of 100 planned women’s stories – now including many untold stories of Native American women and Louise’s account of the life of a midwife, a profession that still exists in a much different form.  Please look over the updated list.  The names, professions, places and other details for finding stories you are interested in can be found by using our google custom search from our website.

More are to come, we have several being worked on – to contact us about contributions, email me below.
