Dorothy's Daily Diary
1945 and 2007 share the same calendar, so this year Dave is posting a page a day from his mother Dorothy's diary. Sis and Dave chime in with memories, background, and news of the day. Via

So very awesome and inspiring. I feel like dragging out my own journal just now.

Awesome. I especially love the news and history stuff at the bottom.

Along the same lines, but horribly twisted: Some Kid's Journal

I wonder what she would say about Englewood now? (ie. the most dangerous part of Chicago)

For diary-philes like me, here are two more:

Papa's Diary Project — in which the grandson posts excerpts from the 1924 diary of his grandfather, a 29-year-old garment worker and Ukrainian immigrant living in New York.

Diary of a Girl — Ultra-dramatic teenage girl's diary/scrapbook from 1969-1970 (link goes to a friend's site).

This is fantastic!

This is going to keep me entertained for hours.

I'm actually a little jealous because Dot appears to be having a heck of a lot more fun than me at the moment. I wouldn't mind skipping school to bake cookies and seeing 6 movies a week and dating a different boy every weekend.

It's funny how there's no mention of any parenting whatsoever (as far as I've gottenn anyway).
