Fearless Females- Day 29 and 30

March 29 — Create a free Footnote Page or a Genealogy Trading Card at Big Huge Labs for a female ancestor. Some of you may have created your own card back in September 2009 following Sheri Fenley’s post over at The Educated Genealogist. This time, the card is for your female ancestor. Tell us about who you've selected and why and then post a link to what you've created.

I selected my great grandma Long.I selected her because I love this pictures.







March 30 — Did you receive any advice or words of wisdom from your mother or another female ancestor?

Grandma Davis always said,  Be kind to others and depend on yourself as much as possible, a hug is worth more than you'll ever know.
If you know how to read and neglect to do it, you are no better off nor informed then if you could not read.

Mom's advice was be moderate in all things, get plenty of rest, fresh air, and sunshine, live close to God, stay peaceful, stay away from doctors as much as possible, use herbs and a good diet, and be positive as your outlook on life affects your health.

I agree with both of them and my mom is the most positive, peaceful, soft spoken person I know. I have never heard her raise her voice and yell, and she has been a good example because I have never yelled either. Grandma Davis was always sweet and kind and huggable, and I have always loved to read.
