A Hundred Years Ago - Are you reading the blog?
A Hundred Years Ago
Are you reading the blog?
A Hundred Years Ago is a blog that transcribes and offers comments on a diary from this date one hundred years ago. Helena Muffly was 15 years old when she started her diary. The Blog has her photo and a photo of the farm where she lived when she wrote it, and more background information.
Do you have a family diary that needs to be transcribed, interpreted and shared?
[Leave a comment to reply, Please and Thanks.]
I do. I have mentioned a time or two, here is one, that my mother kept a diary from 1932, when she was 14, until she died in 1999. The link was what would have been her 91st birthday, and provides a link to the 1936 entries I shared a number of years ago on "webpages" - the technology of the day.
Reading this recent blog reminded me that 1937 will be 75 years ago come January 1, 2012. Do you suppose I can commit myself to putting her 1937 diary online with that start date? Or, I could do 1942, which would be 70 years old, after I had arrived... interesting to ponder. What do you think?
Families are forever! ;-)
