Today is International Woman's Day, and I invite you to read the stories I've written about the women in my husband's and my ancestry over at my website, AnceStories. A list of some of Norm's ancestors is here and my list is here. My sister-in-law also has a story of a great-great-grandmother here. None of the women featured in these stories were famous or did anything "extraordinary;" most lived quiet, hard-working, perhaps even heart-breaking lives, as have the majority of people throughout history.
In turn, I'd love to read about the women in your family, so please post your stories or links, too!
