Grandma's Diary

I wish I had a diary that belonged to an ancestor. Capt. Daniel Carlisle was supposed to have kept a journal that ended up in Illinois with a grandson. It was rumored that it was given to a library and I should have added tracking it down to my "To Do List"

Since I do not have one of my own I enjoy stopping by Ruth Campbell Smith 1925-27 Diaries.

Ruth's granddaughter, Carol, also has a gardening blog that I enjoy and that is how I found the diaries. She is posting a page a day and sometime adds a bit of commentary. She has also set up a companion blog with pictures of the family. I think this is a great idea for anyone fortunate enough to have such a treasure.

What a wonderful idea! I don't have a diary written by an ancestor either, but it is great to read what life was like for our ancestors.
