Are You My Cousin?: The Year Was 1965.....

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

The Year Was 1965.....

Vintage magazines can be so fun.  I have several that were saved from the trash when a library was doing some spring cleaning.  The one above is from April 1965.

This is the February 1965 edition.

What an adorable cover for this March 1965 edition of Woman's Day.

These two women's magazines continue to publish today.  As a wife and mother, I have read and enjoyed them over the years.  Funny,  as I look at the vintage stories, the interests and concerns of women today don't look so different. (The hair styles don't look that different either!  More on that in another post.)

Why 1965 editions?  It's the year I was born (and yes, I'll let you do the math).  Does that mean I'm vintage, too?  Don't answer that.

The year I graduated from high school. I loved September when the really thick editions came out. Vogue, Glamor, Seventeen.

I am taking it hard that I'm vintage on my way to antique. Ouch!

I like the dos. Still good today! Thanks for the glimpse backward.
