This month is all about learning about your family from journals, diaries, letters or anything else they may have written in their own words.
The question is- What have you discovered to help you better understand the people on your family tree? What did they say in their own words?
So, what are y’all saying?

I remember growing up in the 1960s that my mother and her mother exchanged weekly letters, my grandmother’s on her signature blue stationary written with a fountain pen. It seems so quaint now.”
What wonderful memories Liz! Thanks for sharing!

Oh, I love this idea! I don’t have much “in their own words,” but I do have a couple of things. Thank you for the blog post idea!
Bethany, I hope you will share a link to your post once you finish writing it! Glad you like the prompt!

I haven’t found letters or journals written by my ancestors. But I’ve saved many letters I’ve received over the years from friends and family. Someday I will re-read them and hope to find things I’ve forgotten about.
Cathy, happy to get you thinking about those letters!
Thanks, everyone for your comments this month. Sounds like this topic got many thinking about rereading and creating blog posts.
How about you?
