A Diary - the diaries of Harriet Nichols, a long time resident of Horseheads, NY. Beginning in the Spring of 1916, the diaries offer small glimpses into the daily lives of Harriet, her sister Bessie, and many of the events and people they came in contact with over the years.

We have most of her diaries, those missing are primarily 1932-1935, and 1939-1941. Who knows that these might also turn up for us one day. The diaries we currently hold are shown below... only those that have been transcribed are selectable. Transcribing is ongoing.

Occasionally a word or name has been difficult to decipher. Brackets [ ] are used where there is uncertainty about a word. The transcript follows Harriet's own misspellings, occasional lack of punctuation and use of lower case in some proper names. While earnestly trying to be as exact as possible, no doubt a few mistakes will be made, hopefully very few in number.

Each of the diaries, except for her first two, cover a single year. (The last part of 1916 was included in the 1917 diary). Diaries are displayed in book form, each page covering a single day, blank pages included for any days Harriet made no entries.
