Election time! Think of how important this moment was to your female relatives when they finally earned the right to vote. Then #vote in their honor!

This is a brief history of the struggle to gain the right to vote for women. I've also included how I've used voting records to learn more about my female ancestors. #genealogy #history #elections #womenshistory

Race was an issue in Hawaii in the 1800s. Everything from the jobs you could take to the wages you earned were based on race in the sugar plantation system. The Portuguese, which my ancestors were, fell into a group that was Caucasian, but not White. #genealogy #hawaiihistory #portuguesehistory
