I haven't participated in SNGF for quite some time but this looked interesting... our assigned mission tonight from Randy at Genea-Musings is to check out the dMarie Time Capsule website, select a date from our family history and share the information.
I selected the birth date of my paternal great-grandmother May Kidwell, born Feb 24, 1903.
Following are some prices and a few statistics of the time:
Milk: $0.29/gal US
Avg Income: $703/yr
DOW Avg: 49
One of the top books of 1903 was The Call of The Wild by Jack London.
One of the top toys of the year was Crayola Crayons
I also learned that on this date in 1903, the US signed the agreement acquiring a naval station at Guantanamo Bay Cuba.
Great site to get more insight to our ancestors lives! Thanks Randy!
