Women have left their mark on history in many ways—through fashion, art, business, and discoveries of all kinds. Much of what we know about early life comes from the day-to-day entries in diaries and journals written by women. In fact, these writings are important primary sources used in research. While most are not filled with exciting details of major events or salacious gossip, many reveal a lot about particular periods and people that might never be known. They also give us a closer look at the impact on our day-to-day lives and serve as a key source for learning from the past.
The Cortland County Historical Society is hosting a workshop about journals and their useful nature in research. In addition to a discussion about women’s contributions to history through their journal writings, there will be a hands-on workshop geared toward personalizing your own journal with collage and an opportunity to start recording your journey. All materials and light refreshments will be provided.
