So That's Where I Get It From

March 17 – Women’s History Month – Fearless Females

March 17   –   Social Butterfly? What social organizations or groups did your mother or grandmother belong to? Sewing circle, church group, fraternal benefit society or lodge? Describe her role in the group.

I can’t really say too much about this topic as neither my mother or grandmothers appear to have been members of any social organisations as such!

My mother told me that her mother, Lucy Sinclair (nee Dartnell) used to go to events and social evenings at the British Legion in Balham, London but she wasn’t a member of the Legion.

I’ve been going through some of my female ancestors and the females in my partner Paul’s family but there doesn’t seem to be anyone that was involved with groups or social organisations.

I’m sure that some of my female ancestors would have been in church groups or even Women’s Institute groups but as yet I just haven’t found anything like that for any of my female ancestors.  Perhaps I need to start searching some different kinds of records to delve into this a bit further?

This theme is certainly making me aware that I need to look more into the lives of my female ancestors than I have been doing!
