52 Ancestors Challenge: Week 15 Recap

52ancestors-week15I wondered if the number of posts would slow down once we got into warmer weather. Then it dawned on me — that might not be an issue! In my neck of the woods, it was 78 degrees on Sunday… and today we had almost an inch of snow.

This week, Nellie has some wonderful photos of her 4th-great grandmother Mabel Dodson Cortright Ramsey Ransom. (Nellie — I agree that her name is fun to say!) Nervous about cold-calling a potential relative? So was thegenealogygirl. She overcame her shyness and learned a bit more about her great-grand-uncle. Vera Marie Badertscher outlines what she knows about the mysterious disappearance of her ancestor’s second wife. After reading Ian Hadden’s account of Helen Shand Gammie, you’ll see why a descendant called her “the strongest woman I ever saw.”

My ancestor this week was William H. Skinner, my 3rd-great-grandfather who had the decency to die in a timely manner.

    Hi Amy, I noticed my post #1 didn’t make it on to your list and I wondered if I’ve not done the links right. I’m working from an iPad so that might explain it. I so pleased to be part of this challenge!

      That was totally my fault! I didn’t have it set up in Feedly. I will be certain to include it in next week’s recap (along with any other 52 Ancestors posts you might do this week).
