dc.description.abstractThe idea for this paper came from the Kanaski family who now occupies the Sketcher house in Huron County. When they moved in, Anna Sketcher's son left much of the family belongings, among them were several of Anna's personal diaries. While cleaning out the attic one day, Mrs. Kanaski came across those diaries and later mentioned them to me. Of course I love old things and especially when they involve deciphering someone's handwriting so naturally I was excited to learn more. However, I did not initially think about them as a potential Senior Individualized Project. But when I continued to think about my topic, the diaries kept coming up and eventually I decided that farming would be an incredibly interesting topic especially since I would have access to such a great primary source. After doing all the research and writing, I still enjoy the topic and actually want to keep learning more so I would think that it has been a success.en_US
