About two authors--their family and history

Brittany started back to school earlier this month and I started back online Friday. On campus classes begin Monday and I plan to spend some time at the college library working on genealogy. Brittany has the Little House on the Prairie books. I was helping her organize her books and that prompted me to check out sites about Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family. I found the following link and thought it was pretty cool to see Laura's Family Tree.

I also read some about Louisa May Alcott. I have just finished reading The Inheritence, a book Alcott wrote at age 17. It was originally thought that Louisa had died of Mercury poisoning. There are now some doctors who think she may have died of Lupus although the Lupus may have been brought on by the exposure to mercury.
