Fearless Females March 8: Letters, Diaries, Journals

Did one of your female ancestors leave a diary, journal, or collection of letters? Share an entry or excerpt.
My Grandma has a collection of letters that she and my Grandpa wrote back and forth while my grandpa was in the Army during World War II.  I have never read them.


  1. I hope you get the chance to read them. I have 25 that my ggg grandparents wrote during the civil war, and they are such a treasure.

  2. I think my Dad has the letters and as far as I know my Grandma wants them destroyed after she dies. I have to respect her wishes even though it breaks my heart to do it.
