Today’s entry from the unknown writer of a 1947 diary found in Kentucky:
We washed. I painted the screen doors & a chair. We painted the wall going down in the basement. Set out tomatoes. Nick & Mrs. Burning bought a place on Chenault Rd.
About my little diary project
The goal is to post entries from the diaries and journals of my ancestors, willing friends and family, myself, and found public sources like a diary my godmother discovered in a Kentucky resale shop. I want to organize them by writer, date, and where possible, geographic location. The reason: I want to honor and create a shared, minimally curated source of daily accounts of life from ordinary people. If you’d like to participate, contact me for guidelines.
