Tool to find suffrage activists in family trees!

Better Days 2020, a Utah-based women’s history organization, and Ancestry, the internationally- renowned family history company, are collaborating on a tool for Ancestry to connect Americans with the suffragist activists in their family tree. The “Find Your Suffragist” tool will allow millions of subscribers to identify women in their family tree who participated in the suffrage movement, signed petitions, or voted. Because it is prohibitively labor intensive for one organization to gather the necessary records, this tool will only be possible with your help. We need your help to identify relevant records in your state for inclusion in this tool.

In gratitude for contributions to Better Days 2020 and Ancestry, organizations will be listed in the project credits. This information was provided by Neylan McBaine, founder and CEO, Better Days 2020, as well as Katherine Kitterman, Historical Director of Better Days 2020, and Brian Peterson, Sr. Content Relationship Manager, Ancestry. Please respond to by September 1, 2019.
