Are You My Cousin?: A Social History Resource

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!

A Social History Resource

Nancy over at My Ancestors and Me wrote this wonderful post on HEARTH - Home Economics Archive: Research, Tradition, and History website published by the Mann Library at Cornell University. HEARTH  is a great resource into the home lives of our ancestors.  Here you will find information on how they dressed, the food they ate, and how they cared for their homes.  There are even issues regarding sanitation issues!  As I tell my ancestors' stories, I think HEARTH will provide interesting social history details and a better understanding of my ancestors' daily lives.

Head over to My Ancestor and Me and read all the details.
