52 Ancestors Challenge: Week 21 Recap

52ancestors-week21It’s been a crazied, hectic week…. again. That means that this recap is late…. again. This recap covers posts from May 21 – May 27.

Several bloggers featured military ancestors this week, including Judi Carroll-Thompson who featured her ancestor Julius Copeland of the 42nd U.S. Colored Troops. Dave Lucey wrote about his relatives Gilbert Stanhope and George Stanhope, both of the 1st Maine Heavy Artillery. Terri wrote about her cousin James Doyle Albey who was killed in action in Korea. Beth Gatlin shared stories and photos of her relative Ferdinand Constand Schneider, who was killed in World War I.

Tim Graham summed up the meaning of Memorial Day beautifully with his tribute to his relative Clyde C. Kitch, who gave all.

My contribution this week was about my great-grandmother, Margaret Priscilla Kingery Johnson, and has a few tips about researching common names.

    Amy, please don’t fret about missing your self-imposed deadline because you were accomplishing other things. This week marks your next opportunity to generate the report and participants list on the day you’ve chosen. You go, girl! You can do it!

    I, too, have “fallen off the horse” since the illness and death of a dearly loved one. I look forward to resuming the blog of tales in our family’s tree. Maybe I’ll take my own advice and select a story that needs to be told. It might be his….

      Thanks for the kind words. This week’s definitely needs to be “on time” (even if it is a self-imposed timeline ;) ) You’ll see why in a day or two. Nothing bad, just a change of schedule.
