52 Ancestors Challenge: Week 11 Recap

52ancestors-week11People sometimes ask me if it takes a long time to put together the weekly recap. It isn’t fast, but it would be a lot faster if the posts weren’t so good! I can’t help but stop and read them!

Paul’s story of searching for the sister he never knew is touching. Denise Lemon Knapp’s story sounds like daytime television: “Today on Maury: She Married Her Own Son-In-Law.” Deborah Holman teaches us some good lessons about reading quickly, citing sources, and maybe not always believing everything your father tells you about famous relatives. Schalene Dagutis shows that when it comes to murder, you can’t believe everything you read. Niki Davis shares why she doesn’t like to go to the basement during storm warnings in “How an F5 Twister Shaped a Man.”

My contribution this week: “An Enigma Wrapped With a Bow: Clara Mason Young,” the only great-grandparent I knew.

And now, on to the posts…

      Cheryl, I’m so sorry to hear about your dog. I read your post; it is a lovely tribute both to your mother and all of the special pets you’ve had. (And I already have it listed for next week’s recap.)

    Just posted another story on my blog Skeletons In The Closet. It’s called Bubba and Big Daddy – A Love Story

    #52Ancestors strikes again. Another cousin found in Week 11. Cathy, author of the Remember Me blog, wrote about Thomas Tinsley. I had just been working on a new DNA match whose line had married into some Tinsleys in Bedford County, Virginia. I posted a comment on her blog wondering if her Thomas and my Roy could be related. She found me on Ancestry and did all the legwork to figure it out. We are!
