Finding suffrage activists in your family tree!

Better Days 2020, a Utah-based women’s history organization, and Ancestry, the family history company, are collaborating on a tool for Ancestry to connect Americans with the suffragists in their family tree. The “Find Your Suffragist” tool, scheduled for release in 2020, will allow an estimated 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 outside help. Identify relevant records in your state for inclusion in this tool.

In gratitude for volunteer work with Better Days 2020 and Ancestry, the contributing organization’s name will be included in the project credits. Have access to the tool when it is available in 2020.
