Saturday Night Genealogy Fun Fearless Females
Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):
1) Read Lisa Alzo's blog post Back for a Fourth Year: Fearless Females: 31 Blogging Prompts to Celebrate Women's History Month on her blog, The Accidental Genealogist.
2) Choose one of her daily blog prompts from the list (this is March 9th, do that one if you don't want to choose another), and write about it.
Well my grandmother Cleo (Travis) Kelly turned out to be the family historian for her Travis family and also some for the Kelly family. She collected a few photo albums, and many letters from her siblings and she had a lot of brothers, sisters and half brothers and sisters. Her mom died after child number seven (but maybe a couple more as there are two big spaces that could have been children also.) Her father remarried and the second wife had ten more kids. Although Cleo was second oldest she outlived 14 of her siblings so had a lot of time to collect all the obits, and several photo albums. One is from her aunt Latisha Vanderpool and I have been posting pictures from that album.
