Are You My Cousin?: Adding Understanding To Our Ancestors' Lives

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!

Adding Understanding To Our Ancestors' Lives

I came across the blog 19th-century American Women recently.  As the title implies, this blog focuses on women and how their lives changed during the 19th century.  Barbara the author obviously loves history and offers glimpses into different aspects of women's lives - everything from a well kept table to Christmas memories of women living during the Civil War.  When possible, the women's stories are told in their own words.

It's a fun (and informative) read.
