**Update: my ancestor’s journal is now a blog of its own: https://journalofemmatiltonrichards.wordpress.com/**
Several years ago, I came across a copy of my great-great grandmother’s journal. My great great grandmother’s name was Emma Tilton Richards and she lived in Williamsburg, Massachusetts. The journal was kept from 1888 to 1902. In 1933, someone had transcribed the original diary on a typewriter and then later someone else made photocopies of the typewritten version. I have started copying over this journal into a Word document, and posting about this project on my blog. Here is an index to posts on this topic.
