March 26 – What education did your mother receive? Your grandmothers? Great-grandmothers? Note any advanced degrees or special achievements.
I always remember my dear Mum being very proud that she won a Scholarship to attend a particular school when she was much younger. The war came along and interfered with Mum’s education, especially as she was evacuated away from her home and family. She won a Junior County Scholarship that allowed her entry into a very good school and her own mum found it hard to believe that her daughter did so well.
I have no idea about the education received by both my grandmothers or any of my great grandmothers. I think this is something I need to look into, like school logs, as it might prove very interesting.
There is no family information passed down that has been specific about the education these female ancestors received and I have no knowledge of any degrees or special achievements attained by any of them.
