For Women's history month I'm highlighting a few favorite female ancestors: a missionary to China, a farmer's wife, a mother who received a civil war pension based on her son's death, and a woman who was adjudged insane.

I love humour. I think the ability to laugh at ourselves, each other and the world around us is the last stand we have against insanity. Intelligent humour. Gallows humour. The black humour of poli...

I've wndered about that.
 
Interesting & have wondered about this. ~> Photographers are sleep-walking into a ‘photographic Armageddon’
Photographers must print images they want to preserve, or treasured photos may be unavailable to future generations when digital storage media wears out or becomes obsolete.

Story
Introduction
Hi! I'm a mid-life  woman with a high stress professional job that I sometimes love; I'm a bookworm who doesn't have enough time to read; I lean left politically; I'm a liberal Christian (yep, we exist), and an insomniac. My newest passion is family history. I love researching my ancestors and finding out their stories; I'm not only collecting names. I've also started a blog to keep my family informed of my research, help me analyze my research,  make new friends, and possibly find new cousins. ; ) Climbing My Family Tree - http://jahcmft.blogspot.com/.  Stop in and say hi! And I'm on Twitter at https://twitter.com/JoAllisonHenn
