Letters from the past !

March 17, 2018

 

 

 

 

 

I've spent a blissfully happy afternoon up in my garret, sorting through the treasure trove of old letters shared with me by a colleague. Reading long-ago letters between two sisters-- Lila and Thomasine --who were Mills College students back in 1889-1893.  

 

 

I still have two more boxes of letters to read!

 

And I went online to the Ancestry and Familysearch genealogy websites and did some foraging...  Turned up such a lot about their lives.  What an amazing resource.  I saw old birth certificates, death certificates... I even corrected an ERROR that was made in the 1880 census, listing Thomasine (a girl) as Thomas (a boy).

 

 

 

 

 

And now I feel the first stirrings of story . . . But is it a ghost story? A time travel tale? A murder mystery? A family drama?


Or maybe none of these.

 

So . . . time will tell.
