National Women's History Month - March 8

National Women's History Month - March 8

For National Women's History Month Lisa Alzo at The Accidental Genealogist has provided 31 blogging prompts that may interest you. They are also being promoted by GeneaBlogger on Facebook.

March 8 — Did one of your female ancestors leave a diary, journal, or collection of letters?  Share an entry or excerpt.

My mother, Mary Eileen Kinnick Smith Olson, kept a daily diary from about age 12 until she died. As a tribute to her, a couple of years ago, I transcribed her 1936 diary, day by day, week by week, and posted it, along with photos and other relevant links to her movie, book, and other interests. This was the year she not only graduated from high school, but 'lost' her first boy friend, got her first job, and began dating the man she would first marry, my Dad. Take a peek. I'd love to hear your comments... on content, form, style, whatever:
