Thanks to the Accidental Genealogist for the Blogging Prompts for Fearless Females for March!
March 26 — What education did your mother receive? Your grandmothers? Great-grandmothers? Note any advanced degrees or special achievements.
My grandmothers neither one got more than a very elementary education. Both enjoyed reading, but neither had a formal education. As far as I know, my great-grandmothers did about the same.
My mother. however, not only graduated from high school, but went on to obtain a degree in theology and religious studies from Liberty University in the very early 1980's. She also took many short courses in areas of interest before that [H.R. Block income tax preparation being one that I can recall.]
My mother was always one to highly encourage advanced education, and of her four children, three of us have obtained collegic degrees.
