March 14 — Newsmakers? Did you have a female ancestor who made the news? Why? Was she famous or notorious? Did she appear in the social column?
My aunt Sr. Camilla Alzo wrote this letter to the local newspaper in Duquesne, Pennsylvania, dated 20 January 1955. A fellow genealogist who is indexing newspaper items for the historical society in my hometown came across this clipping and sent it to me. She took such care in writing a simple letter of thanks.
I’ve always thought that perhaps my aunt was an indirect influence on my decision to become a writer.
