I have been trying to find my Grand Parents whom I believe were at the time in Eaton County Mi, farming somewhere near Charlotte. The names are often strange, and the number of families with 6-12 kids is of course totally weird by todays standards......but what really gets me is the number of hours that these (mostly guys) claimed to be working. The question is how many hours did you work the week before, and the often given answer is somewhere between 70 and 80 hours. It is not just the farmers either, though the farmers tend to claim more working hours than the city folks.
What catches your attention??
I'm working it, but even moving from page to page is taffy, at least on my computer. I post in a rest phase.
Besides all that, I really should be looking up 1910.
