Some of the posts that stood out to me this week included:
- Lynda at Timelines & Stories, who told about her ancestor Frederick Henry William Moehlmann and his candy stand at the courthouse
- Eileen Souza at Old Bones Genealogy, who told about her search for Edward Noble
- Cathy Meder-Dempsey at Opening Doors in Brick Walls, who shared a not quite rags-to-riches journey
My post this week was about my great-uncle (“grand-uncle,” if you prefer) Harold Young and his invisible wheelchair.
Who did you write about this past week? Leave a comment with a link to your post and a little bit about the ancestor. We’d love to read it!
Upcoming Optional Themes:
- Week 18 (Apr 30 – May 6) – Where There’s a Will
- Week 19 )May 7-13) – There’s a Way
- Week 20 (May 14-20) – Black Sheep
- Week 21 (May 21-27) – Military
- Week 22 (May 28 – June 3) – Commencement
The May themes post has some suggestions on how you might think about the themes. Remember, the optional weekly themes are just that — optional. Feel free to use them or not! The point of 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks isn’t to follow the themes. The point is to write more about our ancestors. What you write about is up to you!
