"INTERNATIONAL WOMAN'S DAY TODAY"
Today is International Woman's day.....and being a genealogy buff!!! what better way to share an old photo of my family tree then on this wonderful day..........woman of the world both from the past and into the future are the life of any family, and here are mine.my grandfathers mother (my great gran) Auntie Grew my grand fathers sister, Bertha Russell my great gran on my grandmothers side, my Mum who is 80 this year in her arms, Audrey, Joan and Marjorie (cousins)......and the men as well but some of the ladies I love.
There are Many, Many more woman in my family, like the milk maids that came to S.Aust in 1839, and their mother who brought herself along with her husband and 8 children only to see her husband and two of her children die before herself in 1840......leaving those to survive on their own, Or the Great gran I never knew who was forced to give my grandmother up to be taken in by a beautiful German family in Truro, they are all international woman of the world........like my sisters, and sisters in law, and my beautiful daughters and their daughters......this family tree will continue to grow and with it the strength of our woman in various rolls be they as in the past.....follow their husbands to a distant land, or work the fields as good as any man could, or struggling to keep their family safe while their men during the depression walk for days and days looking for work.
Every woman in every part of this globe we call earth rejoice for we "ARE WOMAN OF THE INTERNATIONAL WORLD"
this is my day humbled by others - happy to know them all!
How is your day!
