Fearless Females – March 14: In The News

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?

I have had many female relatives in various social columns throughout the United States on my maternal side. 

When I was going through my Paternal mom’s scrapbook, I came across this clipped out picture of my grandmother’s sister Hattie Bunn Criner who was born in 1914.  I am unsure as to what magazine this photo was published in, but she seemed to be very happy.  I did not have the opportunity to get to know Hattie, and our encounters were very few.

Apparently she was a housekeeper in her middle ages.

Genealogy Corner: Day #3

Today was a slow day for me.  I scanned the ten death certificates I received a few days ago.  I cropped them and saved them to my hard drive.

As I was organizing my room I found the photo of my Paternal Grand Aunt, Hattie Bunn Criner, my grandmother’s younger sister.  I met Hattie for the first time in 1989 at my grandmother’s funeral.  I was really in awe because she looked so much like my grandmother Helen.

I thought I would get some reading in today, but I got a call to go to a Christmas Party, and had only ten minutes to get dressed…so….no reading for me tonight.

Right before I went out the door, One of my dearest friends sent me a Youtube Video she created of the Walter J. Porter Portrait Unveiling. It was spectacular so I thought I would share. Thank You Tracy for your friendship and putting Love into it!!
