Week 30 – can you believe it?!
Leaving links to the posts in the comments seems to be working well. Let’s keep it up.
As for my posts, life has continued to be very hectic. All good, just busy. In fact, I’m heading to Indianapolis this weekend for the Midwestern Roots conference, where I will be presenting a workshop on using Ancestry.com and 4 lectures (“Finding Females,” “How Do I Know That’s My Ancestor,” “Final Residences: Researching Cemeteries,” and “Researching Your Civil War Ancestor on Fold3.” I hope to see you there! (And I hope to be back to writing next week. So much to write about!)
Also, be sure to go back to the Week 29 recap to see all of the posts that were written last week. Who knows — you might find a cousin or two in there!
Leave a link to your 52 Ancestors Challenge post from this week in the comments below.

DEATH, SAVAGE, STONE, BIRD Last week I diverted my attention from individual stories to talk about the odd names I found in my Family Tree. What’s your oddest name?
Whoops–just realized that the odd names post was not my #30. Rather #30 was this one on Israel STONE, a pioneer on the Ohio frontier. http://ancestorsinaprons.com/2014/07/52-ancestors-30-israel-stone/
MITCHELL – #30 Philander Davis Mitchell – A Judge and a Fair and Decent Man

Here is my week 30 – an ancestor I know very little about. She died of senile decay, bed sores, gangrene and exhaustion ……. enough to kill anyone !
I am a bit behind but catching up.
Here is my week 1! I know I won’t be able to catch up, but I wanted to develop the habit of writing.
