'Food For Thought ' with Women's Lives

Here is a link from Gena Philibert-Ortega's blog-   Food.Family.Ephemera. ~Gena Philibert-Ortega 
It is a part of her interview segment with Lisa Louise Cooke of 'Genealogy Gems'.
I found it interesting and enjoyed listening to their suggestions on using recipes and cookbooks to help 'document' the lives of women on a more personal note.  Several ideas were mentioned on preserving newspaper clippings and recipe cards which I found helpful.  If you are interested,  the entire interview can be found at  Genealogy Gems Podcast, Episode 137

The lives of women are multi-faceted and I believe there are so many more ways to tell their stories that help embellish all the facts of information that we find in documents and vital records.

Happy Independence Day!!

How grateful we are to our founding fathers who instituted the foundational heritage of our country to establish a free land of infinite possibilities and opportunities....

We are reminded every day of the importance of preserving our freedoms and likewise,  we extend our gratitude to the sacrifices of all men and women of our United States of America Military and their families.

Today, in the spirit of the anniversary of the 4th of July,  we celebrate our Independence.
I thought what a great opportunity to review the events by reading what was written on the actual documents and refresh our knowledge on the foundation of our country.
