Joyce's Search Tip - December 2010
Do You Know that you can search just the 355 pages of our
Diaries and Letters
on this site  by using the Diaries button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? But diaries and letters are wonderful sources to understand the culture of time and place. Read them and enjoy them slowly.
I kept the list with the arrangement and spacing of her original list. Her handwriting is impeccable, a trait she did not pass on to my father or me. Keeping with the tradition of the time, the female and male listings are kept separately.
Joyce,  At a shadow social a sheet is hung up with a light behind it and the girls stand behind the sheet while the boys try to identify their date by their shadow. I never attended such a function but have heard my father tell of them. Much fun according to him.   Creig B. Crippen
