Pioneer sites and others : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

Is there or can we come up with a list of all of the pioneer/family/do-it-yourself-pre-WW2 sites. Maybe we can list the ones we know about, then as time goes by I or one of us can organize them. What do you think?

Recipe sites too. Little Bit put a great one on her forum for candy.

Do you mean like this?

If so, I have some to add.

Ann, yes. Do you think it would work if we started threads with titles such as pioneer, civil war, depression era, cookie, desserts, candy etc. then we could add to them whenever we found a new site we think others would be interested in?

Articles touch a wide range of subject areas. Included are such diverse pioneer craft and industry as wooden toy making and rope making. There are biographical profiles of Ozarkers' reminiscences of life and recreation. Agricultural topics range from sheep shearing to bee keeping. Bittersweet has been described as a "Foxfire of the Ozarks" after a similar project begun in Georgia in the early 1970's.

The library of Congress or the National Archives (I think the first) has the online interviews made by the WPA during the depression. I love to read these.

Oh, the one Dave posted about is wonderful! I think Bernice posted about it either here or another forum. I love visiting that site and when my puter crashed I thought I'd lost it. My DD found it for me...isn't she sweet!

I had forgotten how women managed without a refrigerator. My grandmother had done without for many years because I remember when she got one.
