52 ancestors

It was over 2 years ago now, in January 2014, that Amy Johnson Crow posted the “52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks” challenge to her blog. Many genealogy bloggers took her up on the challenge and continued it through 2015 and some still continue it today.

I will be starting that challenge now that I actually started a blog. 

I decided to do this for a couple reasons. First, it is a good way to organize myself to start posting about my ancestors. A blog needs content!  Second, it is a good way to get posts out there on my “brick walls.” I hope that others who find this blog or google on some of these same ancestors will make content. And finally, I am in process of cleaning up all my sources and citations and my goal is to choose one ancestor per week and correctly add or fix my citations for that ancestor. That ancestor will then be the lucky person who ends up in my blog!

Look for the first “52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks” post in the next few days!
