In honor of Mother’s Day, for this month’s Transcribe-A-Thon we will be transcribing letters from our collection written to and from mothers and grandmothers. These letters range from as far back as the 1790s and cover a variety of topics such as family updates, travel experiences, health, and school, with each letter providing a unique insight into the lives and relationships of Sandy Spring residents over the past two centuries. Come join us and get a glimpse into the joys and hardships of motherhood throughout history!
