Fredericksburg, VA is full of so much history, and many of the home owners celebrate the history of their house with little plaques by the front door bell ng an interesting little story. This is one of my absolute favorites!

Deixando registrado que terminei oficialmente o meu 1o (e talvez último) trabalho de análise cartográfica. Já tinha pegado antes muitos mapas para outras pesquisas, mas todas totalmente de caráter investigativo; acho que esse trabalho me ajudou a conquistar habilidades diferentes e ter um aprendizado novo. Esse mapa acima não tem a ver com o trabalho (confidencial), porém ilustra bem o lugar em que eu queria estar agora - PERNAMBUCO 😂
Ah sim, esse é um mapa descritivo bilingüe - holandês e latim - feito em 1630 a partir do litoral de Olinda. O material está disponível inteira e publicamente para consulta na Biblioteca Nacional. Tem um texto enorme sobre as especifidades da área etc ;) #cartografia#cartography#brasilcolonia#paleografia#historiadobrasil#historicalresearch
I have discovered more tantalising bits of history in another one of the knitting books I found in a charity shop in Guildford last month. The items aren’t always apparent at first as they have been used to bookmark specific patterns. I am trying to piece together a history of Mrs and Mis Cowie from the clues I am finding in the books and a it of on line historical research. I now know that Mrs CowIe died in 1962 which left Miss Cowie on her own. From these items I am surmising that Miss Cowie worked for the Metropolitan Water Board . She travelled to work on the bus and took her knitting to work with her. Perhaps she knitted on the bus on the way to work or during her lunch break....,
Up to 200,000 children were placed with families between 1850 and 1929 by shipping them out west on the train. I would like to think in most cases it provided the children with a much better situation than they faced as orphans. But I shudder to think of what some might have faced.
One of the highlights of our visit to Hawaii was visiting the @bklynnavyyard-built @battleshipmissouri in Pearl Harbor. The staff were so incredibly generous with their time and expertise, and we had an amazing time exploring the ship and its archives. The collection includes the ship’s newsletter, “The Missourian,” and we got to see the first issue, printed in December 1944 while the ship was in San Francisco about to head out to Pearl Harbor and join the Pacific Fleet. We’re so excited to collaborate more with the USS Missouri and share the story of its construction and service.
