    Did you like William Creelman's Diary on this site? How about a much larger one, set in Upper Stewiacke?

    Elmira Ogilvie Webster was born on August 6, 1870, and died on January 9, 1945. She married David Morrison Blaikie and they had 10 children. She kept a diary for much of her life, from 1891 until Christmas Eve, 1944 - the day before she suffered a stroke that claimed her life.

    David is off to a great start with his new site. There is already much interesting data there, and promises of more to come.
