Ella Durant Gets a Wikipedia Page
A few years ago I wrote an essay for the Adirondack Life Magazine lamenting the treatment of Heloise Durant Rose, aka Ella Durant in the historical record of the famous Durant family. So I thought of doing something about it and when I signed up to be an editor on Wikipedia and write her bio wouldn't you know! Someone already did! And they included my novels that reflect her life story. I firmly believe that the work I have done chronicling my research via this blog has increased awareness of her place i the Durant family history. Thank you to all who have read my blogs, followed up with research tips, told me about the scrapbooks in the attic, sent pictures, and family anecdotes. This was truly a public history research project.
