I’m Kara. I’m a history educator, crafter, and all around history nerd. Rather than cultivate facts, anecdotes, and documents about my family history, I have decided to live it. Well, not entirely. Targeting my great-grandmothers, I will do research on my family history and the life and times in which they lived to get a better understanding of the period 1890-1930 and the people who lived then. Each month, I will choose a skills made obsolete by modern life and document my progress. I imagine there will be trials and tribulations, successes and failures, and some new insights on the history of my family, neighborhood, and home.
