Fearless Females – Prompts for Women’s History Month
March 2
Post a photo of one of your female ancestors. Who is in the photo? When was it taken? Why did you select this photo?

This is my grandmothers sister Jennie Amalia Chilberg. She was born 1874 in Borås, Västergötland. She and her brother Johan August emigrated to South Bend, Amerika in 1891. At that time Jennie was only 17 years old. This photo is taken in Sweden, probably just before she would emigrate. I think she was very brave....
