1.Even after re-reading this several times, I am sure she wrote Censoire...but I haven't found any record of what this could be, or even a meaning of the word. Obviously some sort of graduation party.

  1. Very interesting. In your research have you been able to make any connections to current family? How sad this diary didn't stay in the family.

    I love the picture of the older styles.

    If you're hoping to make a connection, wouldn't it improve your chances if you used the real names? Anyone reading this with pretend names will at a loss, even if it might be family?

    You've jogged a memory for me. I have an interesting diary that I've not looked at in years and years when I researched my Mom's side of the family. I think I'll dig it out again.

    Wonderful that you're telling this woman's story.

  2. I have researched the family quite a bit and without giving too much away, have found no direct descendents. I am still researching certain aspects of the family and will likely be able to publish the actual names of the family in the future.
