Today's prompt for the Fearless Female Women's History blog challenge is:
March 16 — If you could have lunch with any female family member (living or dead) or any famous female who would it be and why? Where would you go? What would you eat?
I would like to have lunch with my mother. She's in Texas, 1200 miles away and I don't get to see her very often or spend much time with her. I have so many questions to ask her about her life, my dad's life, her parents, her grandparents. I've been taking stock of what I know about my ancestors, organizing facts and sources, what I know and what I don't know, gaps in the timelines, etc. I bet she could answer a lot of questions about my grandparents, and maybe even great-grandparents. It wouldn't matter where we ate or what, I just want to be able to practice being curious and see how much I could learn.
