I’ve been surprised how many people enjoy reading about Grandma and her times. Several newspapers and blogs have written about the diary. If you haven’t seen the stories you can click on the links below:

  1. I’ve scheduled this for my daily twitter and facebook updates. It’s a great blog. I’m glad you posted it.

  2. So interesting! Thanks.,

  3. NEHGS just spotlighted you in this week’s NEHGS Weekly Genealogist Newsletter. Be prepared for many new readers! Although I only occasionally comment, I read every post.

    • Hi Elizabeth–
      Thanks for letting me know. I noticed that the blog was really active today–and until I saw your comment I couldn’t figure out why. It’s wonderful that NEHGS decided to highlight A Hundred Years Ago.

  4. It would be great to see this published in the magazine “Reminisce.” You may want to contact them. Here’s their website:

    • Thanks for the great suggestion. I clicked on the link, and enjoyed reading some of the stories on the Reminisce site. After things settle down after the holidays, maybe I’ll write something up and submit it.

  5. Thanks for the nice note.

  6. Sheryl – you are so lucky to have this diary. We clearly both enjoy the early 1900s.
