Saving History: Ria TerraNova Webb Preserves Her Family Stories

Another personal history has found its way into the Italian American Collection. As I mentioned previously, these personal family histories, memoirs, bios, stories, remembrances – whatever you want to call them - are some of my favorite items in the collection. The anecdotes about interactions among family and neighbors, so-called ordinary people and events, place the reader into a past both reflective of life in that time, but unique to an individual. I love learning history from them.
