52 Ancestors Challenge 2015: Week 48 Recap and December Themes

52ancestors-2015-48Only 4 more weeks in the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks Challenge!

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving. (If you’re outside the US, I hope you had an enjoyable week :) )

The optional theme for Week 48 was “Thankful.” Please leave a comment with a link to your Week 48 post (whether or not you used the theme).

December Optional Weekly Themes:

  • Week 49 (December 3-9) – Holidays. What ancestor do the holidays put you in mind of?
  • Week 50 (December 10-16) – Naughty. We all have an ancestor who probably received coal in their stocking.
  • Week 51 (December 17-23) – Nice. Define “nice” however you want to :)
  • Week 52 (December 24-31) – Resolution. A resolution can be something that you resolve to do. It can also be the end or conclusion of something. What ancestor do you resolve to find more about in 2016? What ancestor have you resolved conflicting evidence about?

    I’m kicking myself that I wasn’t smart enough to think of my ancestor(s) named Thankful. But thank you, Joanne Barnard for reminding me of those ladies!

    Christina (Ziegler) MANBECK

    Wrapping up my series about wills of the Manbeck family (my husband’s ancestors), I visit the American Revolutionary period kitchen of Christina Manbeck, reconstructed from the bequests in her husband’s will. (And then I cooked a German beef roast that she would have had all the ingredients for.)
