Lori Ann Wegner of The Buttermaker and the Midwife posted “Herman Loock Was Too Deaf for the Draft.” Cheri Hudson Passey of Carolina Girl Genealogy wrote “Defective Ancestors — the Dorritys.” She also found some interesting discrepancies among the records. Cheryl Biermann Hartley of My Search for the Past wrote about her ancestor “Nettie Walton – a Documented Idiot.”
On a personal note, as the mother of a Deaf son, I’d like to thank everyone, first, for tackling this subject and, second, for doing so with such compassion.
Who did you write about for Week 33 (whether or not you used the optional theme)? Leave a comment with a link below. Take a few moments to look at the posts from Week 32. I continue to be amazed at the writing we see every week.
Upcoming Optional Themes
- Week 34 (August 20-26) – Non-Population
- Week 35 (August 27 – September 2) – School Days
A bit of a delay with the September themes. Moving my daughter back to college too more time than I planned. (You’d think after doing this 3 times before that I’d know it always takes longer than planned!)
