Worldwide Genealogy Collaboration: A Way with Children

March is Women's History month and the Accidental Genealogist has 31 blogging prompts to help celebrate women's historical achievements. The blogging prompt for today is:

Tell how a female ancestor interacted with her children. Was she loving or supportive? A disciplinarian? A bit of both?

For this year's recognition of Women's History month, I am focusing on my maternal grandmother, Wilhelmina (Schalin) Lange, my namesake. She raised nine children, who all thought they were her favorite and loved her very much their entire lives long after she died.

Wilhelmina (Schalin) Lange is the elderly woman seated on the left.
This is the last photograph of her taken before her death

Today I wrote about Grandma Lange's special way with children on Worldwide Genealogy -- A Genealogical Collaboration. I hope you'll click over and read my post A Way with Children.


  1. I'm participating in the A to Z blog hop and am thrilled to have found your blog. I love geneaology although I've taken a long break from it to focus on writing. I look forward to your April posts!


    1. Yvonne, thanks for your comment. I find I go through period of research and then writing, and back and forth. Blogging is a great way for me to do both at the same time and practice my writing.
