Notable Women Ancestors - The Women
Notable Women Ancestors

The banner for "Notable Women Ancestors" was created by my good friend, Barb Johnson who surprised me by sneaking over to my genealogy site and swiping every photo she could find of my very own female ancestors.

These women were the inspiration for the creation of "Notable Women Ancestors" in the first place, so I'm extremely pleased to be able to include them now as part of the NWA logo.

The women who appear in the banner and their relationship to me are:
