I second the nomination of edgeworth. I've read a couple of his blogs in the past and find what he is doing fascinating. Reply to this

I love this concept, replicating the sea journey of a relative from the 19th century by placing in daily dairy entries. Reply to this

I wonder how many other have diaries like this in their attics.

When I was living in Heidleburg, Germany 20 years ago, I met an American girl who was travelling with her Grandmas diary. She was following in her Grandmas footsteps and visiting all the places in the diary. She said, some of the shops her Grandma named in the diary were still there, as well as the usual historical stuff like castles. Reply to this

Have you considered asking a historian to take a look at this diary, Paulene? They probably have some sites on the internet. If you do show them, would you mind posting a link to the discussion here, so we can read what they say. :)

Here is the reply to Msg #138327 in the public comments of the blogger.

Thanks for your interest...
Mell When my dad first found the diary 30 years ago, he did approach a publishers with a view to seeing if it would be worth publishing as a book. The view then was that whilst there were some interesting bits, there wasn't enough to sustain interest so it has been wrapped up in a box ever since and I found it again a couple of years ago. 30 years later and the world has moved on and the internet is a fantastic place! I thought I would just publish it on the net and add the bits of information to make it more interesting. I hadn't thought about an historian but I wouldn't be sure as to which expert area it might come under? If I do find someone, I will of course link it in. Thanks again Paulene
