52 Ancestors Challenge: Week 13 Recap

52ancestors-week13Week 13! You know what this means…  We’re 1/4 of the way there!!

I’m almost afraid to ask, but which does it feel like to you: “We’re 1/4 done already?!” or “We’re only 1/4 done?” :)

Passage to the Past has the incredible story of Charles Billings, “the Mayor of Framingham.” Wally Huskonen describes how he’s related to his wife (hint: it’s more than just being spouses). Dave Lucey highlighted not only his War of 1812 ancestor, Rodolphus Stanhope, but also the Preserve the Pensions project, which is working to digitize those valuable pension files.

My contribution this week was how I pieced together a theory of why James R. Steele, my 3rd-great-grandfather, left Washington, DC for Ohio.

Without further ado, here are this week’s posts:

      We *all* have SO much more to learn! That’s the great thing about genealogy! :) And I’m glad to hear that you feel like it “1/4 of the way there” instead of “only 1/4 of the way there” ;)

    To me it feels like “We’re 1/4 done already?!” I was 3 weeks behind when I started, but am only 1 week behind now. By last month I was blogging just about every day, using some of the Geneabloggers prompts too. Your challenge really inspired me to write!

      I’ve been including your posts in the recaps, so I’m not sure what’s happening with the pingbacks.
