Fearless Females: Letters

Lisa Alzo http://www.theaccidentalgenealogist.com/ is repeating her series for Women's History Month.

March 8 — Did one of your female ancestors leave a diary, journal, or collection of letters? Share an entry or excerpt.

Page one my Mother's sister answered.
I have no journals or diaries, oh how I wish I did.  I do have a couple of letters.  I think I have one from each of my favorite aunts where I asked them questions about family history. 

You can double click to see the pages larger and better.

There were 5 pages of pictures I sent them, and they wrote something on every picture.

Same page my Dad's sister answered.
But what I am so glad I have is something I sent to them.  I copied all the family photos I had and asked each aunt who was who in each picture.  They each wrote back with the information they had on each picture.  Since each aunt was from each side of my family, one was my Mother's sister and one my Dad's sister.  The results were very clearly the Hartmann side or the Chaplin side.
