For anyone interested in the years (1784-1789) that Jefferson and his daughter Martha (Patsy) spent in Paris, this site gives information on fashions, lifestyles, sightseeing, and architecture. It includes a lot about Jefferson’s daughter who arrived in Paris at the age of twelve. This site is good for preteens, teens and adults.
