The Accidental Genealogist is running her annual “Fearless Females” month of March. I’m so happy to be joining in, although admittedly a little late. I will attempt to catch up before the end of the month. If you want to see her blog and prompts you can look here: http://www.theaccidentalgenealogist.com/2015/02/back-for-sixth-year-fearless-females.html
The prompt for March 14:
“Newsmakers? Did you have a female ancestor who made the news? Why? Was she famous or notorious? Did she appear in the social column?”
Other than obituaries not many of my female ancestors have made the news. Sabra Cather made the social column a few times when she left and returned from visiting relatives and won a prize in an art contest.
