52 Ancestors Challenge 2015: Week 39 Recap

52ancestors-2015-39It seems appropriate that the optional theme for Week 39 was “unusual,” considering the unusual weather some parts of the country have had.

Did you write about something “unusual” in your family tree this past week? Leave a comment with a link to your post. We’d love to read it!

Also, the optional weekly themes for October are here. I think you could have some real fun with the themes.

By the way, I recently started a new program “31 Days to Better Genealogy,” a free email series filled with practical tips, tricks, and resources to improve your research. I hope you’ll check it out!

    How can I call a family who names so many people Adam Bair or Daniel Bair and marries women named Elizabeth and then names daughters Elizabeth–unusual? Here’s the thing–my husband thought he was 100% Swiss. But the Bairs put a hitch in that definition. You fellow researchers will sympathise to learn that as I wrote this one, it kept changing on me until even the lead character turned out to be LIMBACH instead of BAIR–both from Germany rather than Switzerland.


    (And if you like the recipes that follow these posts–this weeks’ is a delicious Swiss version of carrot cake.)
