Welcome to my blog! I’ve been doing genealogy research for over 15 years. My favorite research tool is old newspapers. So many things can be learned about the people from our past through the articles printed years and years ago. In my research travels, I have enjoyed learning about women; how they ran their household, how they raised their children, how they cleaned, what they cooked, the fashions they wore and so much more. I’ve created this blog as a way to share what I find and my experiences cooking from some pretty vague recipes….because it’s a little difficult to figure out how much 10 cents worth of ground beef and 5 cents of lamb was back in 1902, but I’m up for the adventure and I’m glad you joined!
